Euphorbia amygdaloides 'Ruby Glow' (Large Plant)

Milkweed, Spurge

Hardy Perennial

This handsome evergreen perennial produces vivid bright green flower bracts that seemingly glow above ruby-red foliage. As the foliage ages it becomes near black throughout the cold winter months before producing a new flush of vibrant red leaves in spring. Euphorbia amygdaloides 'Ruby Glow' has a neat compact habit producing rounded, well branched plants that look magnificent grown in large swathes. A colourful choice for moist borders. Although this Spurge will happily tolerate light shade, it is best grown in full sun for the strongest colour. Height and spread: 45cm (18").
