Painterly Broadleaved Evergreen Adds Winter Interest

Nobody has ever described the Purple Wood Spurge (Euphorbia amygdaloides 'Purpurea') as "the same old, same old." This plant is definitely not a plain Jane. This plant offers any garden a plethora of colors and a striking structure.

The Purple Wood Spurge lives up to its namesake. Its stiff wine-colored stems are covered in reddish-purple and green leaves. These long, narrow leaves retain color in the wintertime, so your garden won't look gray and bare when other plants wither. Even when not in bloom, these dramatic leaves will fill your garden with unmatched hues and excitement. And the leathery nature of these leaves also creates textural contrast in your garden.

The flowers range from chartreuse yellow to bright green. When late spring arrives, you'll surely become enamored with these clustering blossoms. You’ll love the pop of delicious, sophisticated color.

If you want your Purple Wood Spurge to produce the maximum amount of buds and blossoms, make sure you plant it in full sun to bring out the purples and reds in the leaves during the fall and encourage it to produce its spectacular flowers.

Plant this perennial broadleaved evergreen in well-drained medium moisture soil and water it regularly. It would make a great addition to a rock garden or as an edging plant on your garden border. You can even create a visual feast by edging a path with these enchanting plants.

This painter's delight will add excitement to your landscape. Order this knockout today!
