Description

Disproportionaly-large heads of bright lime green flowers open above compact stems bearing beautiful glaucous blue green leaves, the unflowered stems having a remarkable likeness to large bottle brushes. This completely unique and unusually-attractive new hybrid, that has never been sold before, and which comes relatively true from seed, appeared in our Devon gardens. We grow numerous euphorbias here, but the original hybrid appeared near to plants of Euphorbia characias, Euphorbia corallioides, and the dwarf Euphorbia pithyusa, and possesses an attractive compact habit somewhere between them. However, any further botanical advice will be welcome. It will make a superb edge-of-border plant, an attractive specimen on the rockery, and will excel in a container.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown.
