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

    Stiff, dark green leaves edged orange-red, are topped with bright brick-red summer flowers that gently fade to yellow in autumn before dying back. This fabulous spurge looks best as part of a vibrant planting scheme based on hot colours in a sunny border, or with bronze-tinted ornamental grasses. Given a moist, well-drained soil, it may need restricting, since it quickly forms small colonies. It tolerates light clay.

  • 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
