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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, fertile, well-drained garden soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A variable, but sturdy form that has white-veined, dark-green leaves, often with a purple-flushed edge, and bright yellow flowerheads throughout the summer. This spurge looks great in a planting scheme based on hot, vibrant colours and will prefer a spot in full sun, although it is tolerant of a little light shade.

  • Garden care: 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
