Curious Foliage Duo for Low Water Garden

This drought tolerant and fun to grow duo with interesting, year-round foliage takes the baking sun in stride, the hotter the better. Set it off with gravel mulch, nestle it within a rockery, or show it off in a container. Maintenance is easy-peasy—cut spent flowering stems of the euphorbia off at its base when they're no longer pleasing, but be very careful to avoid the milky sap, an irritant for many people.
