This low-growing species offers a distinctive look for the edge of the border, the rock garden, or a retaining wall. Its thick, trailing stems, which spread outward like the spokes of a wheel, bear short, succulent gray-blue leaves arranged in a tight spiral around the stem. The foliage is evergreen, and in early spring the tips of the stems rise up and produce large clusters of luminous, sulphur yellow blooms. There’s nothing else quite like E. myrsinites, which means this remarkable plant deserves a location of some prominence.
