Euphorbia 'Amjilassa' is one of the most spectacular species of this amazing and diverse family. From a sowing in January/February it grows rapidly, and by July/August the huge, chrome yellow flower heads can be over 12in. across. It also features bright reddish stems which add significantly to the beauty of one of the finest Euphorbia introductions for many years. True from seed, it is a hardy perennial (US to Zone 5), and a stunning border plant of explosive potential.Found by a Royal Botanical Gardens Kew, plant hunting expedition nearly 10 years ago in Kashmir, near the village of Amjilassa and exclusively sold by Thompson & Morgan. It is, we believe, the first horticultural plant to be the subject of commercial co-operation, where it is intended that some of the proceeds are returned to the people of the country in which it was found.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
Sowing Time: February-July. Sow in trays, pots, etc of good seed compost in a propagator or warm place to maintain an optimum temperature of 65-70F (18-20C).

Keep compost moist at all times.
