EUPHORBIA AMYGDALOIDES PURPUREA
This beauty makes beetroot-coloured spring foliage, an attractive contrast with the golden yellow "flower heads". A slow-growing gem of the euphorbia family, that spreads mainly only by seeds,and it sets very few, but which makes an elegant spring bonus in any border.
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.
