Maintenance Notes: 

These plants begin blooming in early spring and by late spring to early summer they are done. Deadheading won't keep them blooming longer. However, removing the old flowers once the plant has finished blooming will encourage the plant to branch more and the next spring you should see an increase in flowers thanks to a better branched plant.

Perennial Euphorbias should be pinched or topped down to 4 to 6 inches above the ground in mid spring. This will give the plant time to branch and develop enough body and structure to bear the winter's cold. As the temperature drops in the fall and early winter flower buds initiate that will bloom in spring (providing the winter has been mild enough not to freeze the dormant buds.) You can protect the plant from these winter temperature fluctuations with heavy mulch or even rose cones.

Plants in the spurge family often will bleed a milky, white sap if cut or wounded. This sap is a form of latex. Most people will have little or no reaction due to sap exposure from the euphorbia that Proven Winners sells. However, people with sensitive skin or latex allergies should be cautious when handling euphorbia. Poinsettias are in this same family. If you have ever experienced a skin irritation due to contact with poinsettias you should be cautious with all euphorbia.

An improved variety featuring evergreen, smooth foliage and burgundy cool-weather color. Bushy, compact habit, drooping and non-curling leaves.

  • This plant is a stunning accent with flowers that last the majority of the summer. Our only regret is having a brutal freeze last october that killed it.

  • Planted about 3-4 yrs ago- it stays neat, compact- beautiful leaf color, interesting flower that was still intact on the plant to use in a Xmas arrangement. Only wish I could find them again. No one seems to have heard of them.
