This is my number one cut flower foliage plant, which forms the base of 80% of my mixed arrangements.
You never tire of their brilliant acid-green flowers and bold, strong shapes. It is really a short-lived perennial, but it flowers best in its first year, so we treat it as a hardy annual. Cut with care and use gloves to avoid milky sap.
If you have ordered these seeds, we have had unforeseen delays and they will now be available late February. We apologise for any inconvenience.
For best results, grow Euphorbia in full sun or partial shade, in rich, moist, well-drained soil. Treat it as a short lived perennial or an annual and compost when past its best.
