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

  • Soil: moist, well-drained. Will tolerate heavier soils
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The fresh lime green of these flowerheads is such a great colour to have in the border. It mixes with lots of strong colours including rich purples, blues, deep plum to near-black and orange - and it looks really fresh. A robust herbaceous spurge, it may produce a second (less prolific) flush of flowers, and the foliage may take on good autumn colour if it is grown in a sunny spot. It's dazzling!

  • Garden care: Plants may need staking. After flowering remove the faded flower-heads. 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
