Balkan spurge

9cm pot £6.99
9cm pot £6.99
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: light, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (but often short-lived)

    The sulphur yellow flowers appear over an incredibly long period, offering a fresh blast of colour to the palette. The flowers are also excellent for cutting, and look wonderful when teamed with rich purples, plum and orange. One of the best gap-fillers for a border (or mixer in a pot), it is an easy, undemanding and very rewarding little gem!

  • Garden care: Cut back the faded flower stems in autumn. When working with spurges, always wear rubber gloves as the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
