Euphorbia Excalibur

Evergreen Spurge

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.208.190

(='Froeup') This is a hybrid Spurge from England, selected for its outstanding early spring red foliage colour. Plant forms a bushy, upright mound of grey-green leaves, bearing clusters of chartreuse-yellow flowers in mid to late summer. In the fall, both the leaves and stems turn purplish-red, lasting right through until late spring. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Foliage may be tidied up in early spring, before the brightly coloured new growth appears. Remove flower stems at the base after blooming is over. CAUTION: skin and eye irritant/toxic if eaten.
