Euphorbia polychroma ‘Bonfire’


Cushion Spurge

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.208.070


Cushion or Chrome Spurge is a popular perennial for spring display. This selection has foliage that begins green, quickly changing to deep maroon red. Flower heads have bright yellow bracts in spring and are particularly showy against the dark leaves. Excellent for edging, in the large rock garden or in mixed containers. Unusual for cutting. If the clumps splay open after blooming, shearing back by half in early summer will maintain a nice mounding form. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#18585: unlicensed propagation prohibited. CAUTION: skin & eye irritant/toxic if eaten.
