For­get-me-not and spurge

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

The clas­sic siz­zling combo of blue and yel­low is as cheer­ful as a gar­dener in spring. Here, the foam­ing tide of for­get-me-nots (Myoso­tid­ium) rub shoul­ders with brassy spurges in a gravel gar­den. Mid-scene, it’s the com­pact chrome bracts of Euphor­bia

poly­chroma which soon fades to green leafy mounds while the larger Euphor­bia

chara­cias at the back will, if dead­headed care­fully, leave the gar­den fur­nished in a glau­cous ruff.
