Euphorbia dendroides in planting design

Amorgos-2015-180-EuphorbiaI spotted this wonderful plant on the Island of Amorgos in Greece. I would just love to use it in a modernistic garden design as a natural hedge of Euphorbia dendroides. This naturally occurring tree spurge was dessicated in high summer but the natural branch forms are beautifully exposed to create soft fringe to frame any view. In season it will be a brilliant emerald green capped with flowers. It is goat proof as it contains a powerful milky sap which would deter most people too.
