Light up deep shade with this rambling euphorbia and its butter-yellow spring bracts -made brighter by glossy dark rosettes

Val Bourne - Garden Writer

1 year guarantee

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained garden soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    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:

    Long-lived vivid flowers that last for months, possibly longer than any other Euphorbia. Self-seeds vigorously which is a bonus as plant-lovers beg for offshoots.
