Chameleon-Like Foliage
Lime-green flower bracts adorn foliage from late spring into summer. The everchanging festive foliage ranges from wine-red newer growth to multi-toned hues of olive-green. Cooler temps bring super dark foliage for striking combinations. Great for water-wise gardens. Euphorbia Minerís Merlot flaunts a vigorous mounded habit that remains dense. Persistent lime-green bracts add to its colorful extravaganza. With foliage this dramatic, who needs flowers? Heat and drought tolerant and deer resistant too!

Euphorbia General Information

Euphorbia are related to the Poinsettia. Its outer bracts turn colorful in early summer, then deepen in fall. Valuable for hot dry sites, these Mediterranean natives know how to take the heat. The more sun the deeper the foliage color. Remarkably adaptable. *Note: Milky sap from broken stems can be a skin irritant for some. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Euphorbia Plant Care

No special care needed. Can be cut back by a third after flowering to prevent seeding. Does not like to be transplanted once established. Does not usually require division; but if desired, the fleshy roots can be divided in mid-spring every 3- 5 years. Damaged stems can be cut off in spring.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
