Description

This euphorbia combines foliage which is handsome with attractive orange-red bracts. It has many upright reddish stems and narrow dark green leaves with red central veins, which turn red and yellow in autumn. It is a vigorous plant, but makes a great garden filler for the empty spaces. Contact with the milky sap of the leaves should be avoided by wearing gardening gloves and long sleeves as it can irritate the skin.

Sowing advice

Sow in autumn, winter and early spring
Sow the seeds in seed trays or pots in good seed raising mix. Keep warm and moist at 18-22 deg C for the first 2-4 weeks. After this move to -4 to +4 deg C for 4-6 weeks. Then move to 5-12 deg C for germination.
