Euphorbia cyparissias 'Fen's Ruby' reviews
Warning! Beware this plant
Reviewed 9th June 2015 by Jane Hughes
At first sight this is a charming little euphorbia, which I added to my dry garden on chalk some years ago. Appearances are deceptive: it is a thug! Spreads like the pox. Has invaded the lawn. These tendencies are fine in rougher, more inhospitable areas where it runs happily among other scrambling and low growing tough characters and makes a fine show in spring with attractive red new growth and bright lime green flowers. For a brief moment I almost love it, until I see a multiplicity of shoots encroaching on more polite and treasured plants. It is possible only to deter its ambitions - the roots are deep and pervasive. Therefore I'm issuing this warning to the unwary - if you can't resist Fens Ruby, be VERY careful where you plant her. Manage her vigilantly. Surprised Sarah Raven has not included some sort of alert for potential buyers. (Buyers! Please come and take some from my garden free of charge.)
