Euphorbia palustris is native to Europe and Asia Minor and is found in damp habitats: streamsides, marshes and wet meadows. It is a hardy plant and grows in vigorous clumps up to one metre in height.
Euphorbia palustris 'Walenburg Glorie' is not so tall and is a dazzling hardy perennial for a moist or damp spot in the garden. It produces a bouquet of branched stems with light green leaves and a white, central vein. Luminous yellow umbels appear at the tips of the branches in May and June. Height: 50 to 75 cm.
And in autumn the foliage takes on superb seasonal colours.
Try combining it for a purple/yellow-green contrast with Cotinus coggygria 'Purpureus' or, for matching foliage, with the golden hop, Humulus lupulus 'Aureus'.
Grow in the sun or partial shade in good, moist to damp garden soil.
Maintenance: Prune the foliage right back at the end of autumn.
