Glauca has a creeping rhizome from which red stems bear narrow, oblong, blue-grey leaves, which become smaller and more crowded towards the top of the stem where contrasting maroon-coloured bracts surround the tiny flower. A distinctive and attractive foliage plant, well worth growing in a sunny, well-drained site.
It is moderately vigorous, so needs room to spread or regular removal of new shoots. Cut back hard after flowering to retain shape. Tolerant of dry conditions. Use gloves to cut back as the milk of the plant can irritate skin.
