I need more Euphorbias in my life!
This is my considered opinion after seeing the way Euphorbia lathyris danced around Deborah and Martin's garden at Terra Nova. Euphorbia is such a good plant, with its fresh green foliage in spring. It reminds me of a salad - so healthy and full of goodness, you just want to gobble it up!
I seem to have lost Euphorbia 'White Swan', which looked so lovely last autumn, and also Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost', the gimmicky one which a lot of us bought at Bloom last year. Mellifera, that I got at Terra Nova last year, is hanging in there.
So, the only fully, healthy, surviving Euphorbia in my garden is this tiny chap. I bought him at June Blake's last year but she couldn't give me a name for him. Can anyone help? It is quite a small plant.
I did a good bit of mulching today and a little planting. Nearly finished the West Garden. Hubby bought me an additional 300 small square pots and a box of 1000 labels. I wonder how long it will take me to use the labels up.
