Description

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.

Care Tips

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.
