Buy Euphorbia epithymoides spurge ( polychroma ): Vivid acid yellow flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: light, well-drained garden soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dark green, lance-shaped leaves are topped with a froth of bright, acid yellow spring flowers that form a distinctive star shape. This perennial, early flowering euphorbia has a natural mounded shape and a short flowering season, but looks lovely as part of a green and yellow planting scheme or with dark red flowers and bronze-tinted grasses. In autumn the foliage turns a lovely shade of bronze.

  • 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

I am a great euphorbia fan and up until now I have found it difficult to convince my husband of their virtues. However, as soon as this euphorbia showed its glorious golden glow a few weeks ago he's been converted. This compact plant really does shine out in the spring border. I love it.
