Euphorbia biglandulosa blooms close Feb 2012

A very easy plant to grow and keep happy: Euphorbia biglandulosa, blooming all over my garden mid-and-late February through late March. Individual stems die after setting seed, but if you trim them to an inch or two, new side shoots pop right up to replace them. Easy, and self-sows too.

Very cool, Kathy!  I love the leafy spurge types too, plus truly succulent ones, and in-between ones like this E. biglandulosa too.  They're all great, aren't they??  I grew tons of Euphorbia charcias back in Seattle, but it just doesn't get enough chill here to last long term, phooey, LOL.  I do grow E. portlandica which is an excellent, leafy substitute, though much smaller in stature (from the fabulous Annies Annuals catalog/website).  Yours all sound super fun, looking forward to some pics some time soon.  :)  Happy gardening!

Grant I have 5 different varieties. However, I am terrible with names. One is a deciduous variety called "Fire Glow". It has a deep red stem and fall folliage. I have one that is a variegated green/gray leaf with yellow flowers. The others are tricolored. I just love them.

Perfectly said, Kathy!  Thanks for taking a look and commenting.  I really do like Euphorbias too.  What types are you growing??  Thanks again, happy gardening!
