PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Euphorbia mellifera
Canary spurge
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Shrub,
Flowering period Spring
Height 5ft/1.5m
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Well-drained, not too heavy
Sowing time/depth Late spring - early summer, Barely cover
A bold architectural plant, making a large dome of bright green leaves with central white veins. The small flowers, which appear in spring, have a reddish-orange tinge and are followed by interesting seed heads with pretty, textured pods.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Can be sown direct in late spring to early summer, but since germination can be erratic, sometimes taking many months, best to sow under glass in individual pots or modules, into good quality, moist (but not waterlogged) compost, just covering with a little sieved compost or vermiculite (light aids germination), at 20-25C/68-77F. It may help germination to put the sown pot, n a sealed plastic bag, in the fridge for 3-4 months, or place it outside over winter, bringing into the warmth in spring. Dead head plants to prevent self-seeding and cut down flowering stems to ground level from late summer to autumn.
