Euphorbia SAHARA™ ‘Tasmanian Tiger’

Euphorbia characias ssp wulfenii variegata

Euphorbia characias ssp wulfenii variegata SAHARA™ ‘Tasmanian Tiger’ has distinctive and showy, variegated foliage with wide, cream-colored margins and dark green centers. Early spring flower bracts emerge white and cream and continue to look striking well into summer. Mature height is 12–15″ in bloom, with a spread of 18″. This evergreen beauty is hardy to USDA Zone 6 (0º), but is also in demand in colder climates as a three-season accent or container plant. ‘Tasmanian Tiger’ makes a great specimen plant and is outstanding in a container—it is equally attractive in or out of bloom.
