Description

This rare, completely unique, and unusually-attractive new hybrid, that has never been sold before, and which comes true from seed, appeared in our Devon gardens. Sizeable, compact 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. We grow numerous euphorbias here, but the original hybrid appeared near to plants of Euphorbia characias, 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

Seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. Sow into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of year, cover to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; seed tray is best left in a cool protected spot and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in spring, regardless of when sown.
