Euphorbia polychroma

Cushion spurge

Native to Central & southeastern Europe

Thrives in dry, well drained poor soils in full sun and becomes a cushion of green foliage topped by unusual yellowish green bracts.  Air pollution tolerant as well.  Sap is toxic to animals.  Trim after flowering as plants self-seed readily.  Leaves turn red in autumn giving this 3 seasons of interest.
