Looking good today…

euphorbia-purpurea-large

Our plantaria is full of spring colour, and one of our favourite plants of the moment is Euphorbia purpurea, otherwise known as wood spurge.

This is a compact, shade-loving plant that has long-lasting yellow flowers in spring that contrast beautifully with the deep purple, strappy foliage.

It is perfect at the front of a border, where its foliage can be admired.

It is also good as a ground cover plant, and looks spectacular when grown with spring flowering bulbs.

It self-seeds and so will spread, it is also toxic if eaten.
