    A compact, shade-loving, spreading euphorbia that has long-lasting, lime-green flowers in late spring above rosettes of glossy, dark green leaves. It's a valuable plant for difficult areas of dry shade, particularly under trees and it also looks at home in a woodland setting. As it is evergreen and suckering it also makes attractive groundcover. Left unchecked it can become invasive, romping through areas of a small garden.

  • Garden care: In autumn cut back the faded flower stems, avoiding new ones. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant. Remove unwanted seedlings each spring as part of routine border maintenance

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant

      Comments about Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae:

      Arrived as young plants but planted straight out in autumn. They have thrived in my heavy clay soil in the shadiest of spots. They enjoy a little dressing of leaf mould but don't need it. All survived happily and have flowered. The only downside to them is that all parts are toxic so wear gloves around them.
