Euphorbia polychroma


Cushion Spurge

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.208.100


The Chrome or Cushion Spurge is a popular perennial for spring display, especially nice to use alongside tulips and other spring-flowering bulbs. Outstanding for its display of bright golden-yellow flowers, over a perfect cushion of light green leaves. Excellent for edging, in the rock garden, or in containers. Unusual for cutting. Usually has beautiful red fall foliage colour. Plants can be divided in fall or very early spring. Trimming back hard (to 4 inches) in early summer will keep this bushy and compact. CAUTION: skin and eye irritant/toxic if eaten.
