Euphorbias are a diverse group of plants and this is one of the finest herbaceous species in the genus. Its new growth is bright orange/red as it emerges in the spring and as the growth matures it gradually fades to a grey-green with a white central mid-rib through each leaf.

In late spring it then bears bright orange/red flowers with a yellow centre, making fantastic early summer colour through a mixed border.



With the bulbs fading and the herbaceous border growing in leaps and bounds, it is now clear that summer is approaching. Sowing and planting out bedding can begin in some areas of the UK, depending on regional weather variations. It's also time to get back into the lawn mowing regime, as the lawn will be loving the warmer temperatures this month brings.

Direct Gardens offer a professional garden design service which is specifically tailored to your needs, providing shrub and planting advice, designs and planting plans, from a small area to a full-size garden.


We will work with you so you have something that meets your requirements, from the traditional cottage garden to a contemporary city garden.
