    At first the leaves reminded me of Miner’s Lettuce, but the flower is not the same. am hoping someone will give you an answer. Beautiful presentation, Joy, lovely to view:) Sandy

  • Thanks so much Sandy. Celeste was able to identify it for me. It’s called Euphorbia characias wulfenii (Mediterranean spurge).

    This is such a fascinating plant, and you’ve captured its graceful quality beautifully! I’m almost positive it’s a Euphorbia characias wulfenii (“Mediterranean spurge” is the popular name I’m familiar with). I came across one growing by a path at my local botanical garden. Since it was not labeled, I proceeded to ask gardeners and staff. One person knew, and she looked it up for me in a big horticultural book to be sure. I have a photo of it in my RB portfolio:

  • Awesome. Thanks so much for letting me know Celeste. I have never seen it growing here before and found it when I walked up a road I don’t usually take and it was next to the foot path in some ones front garden.
    Love yours also. So happy the gardeners and staff could assist you.
