A sport of the popular variety 'Redwing', it forms attractive mounds of evergreen foliage which colours best in full sun. It looks good in winter containers with spring bulbs and winter pansies, or towards the front of a mixed border with yellow flowers or plants with bright green foliage. This plants recently won a prestigious Gold Medal at the Plantarium Exhibition in The Netherlands.

  • Garden care: After flowering remove the faded flowerheads. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant.
