Probably the most popular and long-lived of all spurges, this old favourite produces strong stems of evergreen, blue-green leaves which terminate in extended narrow heads of bright yellow flowers. One of the easiest, long-lived and trouble-free plants you can grow.
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.
