Description :

Blackbird spurge

Euphorbia 'Blackbird' won the 2004 Plantarium Gold Medal (Boskoop, Netherlands) and is related to Euphorbia 'Redwing Charam' from whom it inherited its compact, rounded habit.

The young foliage starts off a deep maroon (*) and then turns a bronze-green in the summer. Its flowers, typical of the Euphorbia genus, appear in mid-spring, from March to May. The inflorescences are an acid yellow, which soften with age into hues of red and orange.

It is an admirable bed fellow to spring-flowering varieties: bulbs, Primula, Pulmonaria, Helleborus or Bergenia.

Its coloured foliage and rounded habit can be useful to

  • contrast with the silvery foliage of artemisia, the lanceolate leaves of the irises or Astelia,
  • or to combine with purple Heuchera or the rounded Santolina.

Euphorbia 'Blackbird' is also stunning in a pot.

Grow in the sun or slight shade (in hot climates, sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon) in ordinary, light, well-drained soil.

Maintenance: prune the dried inflorescences before the appearance of the new shoots in spring.

Synonym: Euphorbia 'Nothowlee'

(*) sunny exposure will highlight its colouring and bring out the glorious contrast with the acid yellow umbels.
