Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’ is a compact, shade-loving euphorbia, bearing acid-yellow blooms in contrast with purple, strappy foliage. It’s a good choice for growing at the front of a border but is also suitable for using as groundcover in gardens with poor, dry soil, especially in partial shade.
Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’ spreads by underground runners, forming a low weed-smothering carpet. For best results grow in well-drained soil in partial shade.
Always wear gloves when working with euphorbias. The milky sap is a skin irritant.
