Eu­phor­bia amyg­daloides ‘Pur­purea’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

The dull leaves take on rich, red claret tones as the lime green flower spikes ex­tend and emerge in spring. This short-lived plant prefers cooler climes and can be prone to mildew, but it comes true from seed and you can take soft­wood cut­tings any time from mid­sum­mer. Eu­phor­bias are use­ful as ev­er­green interest in con­tain­ers; com­ple­ment them with trail­ing ivy, pan­sies and spring bulbs.
