Named after Euphorbus, physician to the king of Mauritania, this robust, sun-loving genus includes the familiar Poinsettia and is over 1600 species strong. Most species have a poisonous milky sap and softly colored bracts that surround subtly defined flowers. Autumn watches their narrow green leaves turn shades of red, orange and yellow.
Native to the mountain meadows and forest clearings of the Himalayas, this vigorous species is most notable for its upright stature and beautiful foliage, highlighted with white midveins and pinkish margins. Along with its big and bright chartreuse flowers, these colors make for a lovely combination with Nepeta ‘Pool Bank’, Miscanthus ‘Malepartus’ and Aster ‘Mönch’ in the perennial border.
Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Euphorbia longifolia (P-0400)
