EUPHORBIA 'ROSE'S SURPRISE'
We do not know what it was, but the lovely dwarf Euphorbia pithyusa crossed with something in the garden, (possibly E. 'Golden Foam'), to produce this unusual plant, and we were surprised to see it producing seed. It forms a low dome of repeatedly branching red stems carrying countless yellow flowers. Will be happiest on a hot rockery or well-drained area. Let us know if you can solve this one.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
