  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: light, well-drained garden soil
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Upright stems are strung with whorls of purple-flushed, lance-shaped leaves, which produce the best colour in a sunny spot. In early summer, rounded clusters of citrus-yellow flowerheads appear above the foliage. This is a gorgeous, deciduous, spreading perennial that looks great planted towards the front of a sunny border or as part of a Mediterranean scheme. It also makes excellent ground cover. It can run amok if left unattended though so make sure to deadhead before it sets seed and that unwanted seedlings are removed promptly.

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

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
