Euphorbia amygdaloides Frosted Flame
Has some of the most striking foliage of any Euphorbia with changing colour throughout the seasons. Chartreuse flowers emerge from yellow bracts to top the plants in May and June. In summer and autumn variegated leaves are splashed with irregular cream, grey green and red markings. As temperature cools, the foliage takes on a red glow in the winter carried on to early spring. Plants grow into bushy, leafy clumps. Was a top pick in the Colorado State University trials (USA) and the Alberta Perennial trials (Canada) in 2011, thus underlining its adaptability to a wide climate range.
Family : Euphorbiaceae
Architectural plants with attractive foliage and long lasting “flowers” which are actually hiding in colourful structures around the flower itself. They make great border plants and are particularly suited to drier places in the garden or sites in full sun.
