$3.00

This plant is a pretty new introduction with clouds of dainty  small yellow flowers massed on a small bush. It is good as a cut flower.

Description

Euphorbia Golden Foam has masses of small golden flowers on red stems in spring. It is a very compact euphorbia which looks good in any garden situation and its profusion of flowers makes it valuable for places in the garden  where there is a need to brighten a dull spot.  It has been likened to a yellow Gyphsophila. It is rarely seen in gardens to date, but this new introduction is sure to delight flower arrangers and gardeners, because it performs as well as a cut flower as it does in the garden .  The plant will grow in any well drained soil and tolerates partial shade or full sun. It can withstand frost to minus 20 deg C.

 

Sowing advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. However, you can sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, and often wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. But spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth if successful germination occurs.
