Euphorbia amygdaloides

To collect for free from Louise Schmitt

This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

These sucker freely and I've got loads of them so if you need more just ask. Very pretty in spring, and happy in shade or sun - they're very flattering to other plants, especially anything blue or purple. Mine look great right now with periwinkle and centranthus ruber (almost in flower.)

Pick up only please unless you're very close by!

    interesting perennials and annuals. I'm not very keen on 'gaudy' flowers, I prefer a more natural style of planting.... Love Piet Oudolf and meadow planting (hard to achieve in a tiny garden) and I'd like learn more about grasses.
