Tasmanian Tiger has a strong variegation. The leaves are pale blue
green edged in white. From a distance the Tasmanian Tiger looks
creamy white. The Variegated Spurge will be in bloom
from late Winter through Fall. Care should be taken when working with
any Euphorbia because the milky sap is toxic and can burn the skin.
I use gloves or pick up the cut bits with my pruning shears. The
plants are reported to be hardy with Winter temperatures in the single
digits. Our Euphorbia Tasmanian Tiger plants withstood the near
record cold temperatures in our garden and didn't even stop blooming when
so many other plants went to mush.
