Commonly known as Spurge, Euphorbia plants are tough, easy to grow evergreen perennials boasting an exotic appearance, vibrant foliage colours and distinctive flowers. They have a compact, shrubby growth habit with exotic, glossy foliage in a variety of colours including vivid lime and scarlet. They are perfect for adding a touch of class, beauty and winter structure and boast unusual, frothy flower bracts all summer long. Spurge makes an excellent addition to borders, rock gardens, mixed plantings, and woodland schemes, combining particularly well with deep purple-leaved shrubs such as Cotinus Royal Purple. Christmas Poinsettias are even a type of euphorbia! Mulch annually with leaf mould for best results and be careful of the milky sap which can irritate the skin.
