Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week. We love Euphorbia ‘Helen Robinson’ because while the rest of the garden looks like winter, this plant looks like spring! From the robbiae side of the family, this choice, stalwart Euphorbia inherits its compact stature, shade tolerance, and handsome, stout rosettes of blunt-tipped, dark green leaves; the characias side contributes the good-sized chartreuse flower heads. In our garden, it acccompanies Anchusa with a carpet of Corydalis ‘Pere David’ skirting beneath.
