Euphorbia amygdaloides Ruby Glow


Wood Spurge

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.208.410


(='WALEUPHGLO') This Spurge makes a terrific dry sun to part shade groundcover in milder winter regions. It forms a compact, spreading evergreen patch of bright red leaves that mature to near-black. Contrasting flower bracts are yellow and show up beautifully against the dark foliage. This selection can tolerate part shade but full sun produces the best foliage colour. Trim off spent flower stems after blooming, right at the base of the plant. USPP#22200: unlicensed propagation prohibited. CAUTION: skin & eye irritant/toxic if eaten.
