Cypress spurge 'Fens Ruby'
Elegant in imperial purple! Euphorbia cyparissias 'Fens Ruby' is entirely purple from the spring until the autumn. This fast-growing attractive, ball-shaped perennial grows well in sunny borders.

"Euphorbia cyparissias provides very good ground cover. In fact, you might even call it a green pest. It is useful when you need extensive ground cover, but a disaster in manicured beds. You have been warned! "
