Euphorbia Amygdaloides Purpurea
This rare 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 seed, and it sets very few, makes an elegant spring bonus in any border. Occasionally, even more attractive hybrids may occur from seed!
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
