Euphorbia griffithii

BaGaPhoMo, day 30

The downside of Euphorbia griffithii in our light and sandy soil is that it tends to run about a bit, and needs attention at least every couple of years to keep it in bounds; the upsides are its striking spring blooms, attractive architectural form through summer, and in autumn – yep, you guessed :

Euphorbia griffithii Fireglow autumn colour

This is Euphorbia griffithii ‘Fireglow’. We also grow E.g. ‘Dixter’ but frankly, there’s nowt to choose between them.

It’s no good, we can’t resist a close up:

Not a close up as such admittedly – just a serious crop from the photo above.   But pretty striking, huh?
