Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’


Purple Wood Spurge

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.208.140


The Spurges are becoming quite popular among gardeners. This colourful selection has handsome burgundy-purple foliage, perfectly setting off the clusters of bright greenish-yellow flowers that appear in mid to late spring. Plants remain evergreen in areas where they are hardy, developing black-purple tones in the cooler months. Flowers appear on old wood, so prune plants back lightly right after flowering it they need it. In Zones 5 and 6 this may be short lived, but will nearly always self seed and come back. CAUTION: skin and eye irritant/toxic if eaten.
