This new spurge from Germany's InnovaPlant is a variegated version of the E. amygdaloides and E. x martinii hybrid, E. 'Efanthia'. E. 'Helena's Blush' makes a compact 1' tall x 1' wide clump of blue-green leaves, each surrounded by a creamy gold edge. In May, the clumps are topped with a stunning floral display of yellow-and-green variegated flowers...we love this floral effect even more than the foliage. Good drainage is essential in climates with wet, humid summers. This plant was originally named 'Helena', but there was already another E. 'Helena' on the market; hence, the name change.
