Description

Achieve your year-round colour goals the easy way, by including low maintenance and incredibly long-lasting Euphorbia 'Miners Merlot' in your planting scheme. Plant a patch of these extra special spurges in a sunny border and look forward to lovely leaf texture and rich, burgundy colour, plus funky plumes of acid-green flowers which froth up in spring and last to mid-summer. Enjoy a changing display through the year, starting with red young leaves in spring, which mature to deep burgundy in summer and then dark green through autumn and winter.  

Shining brightest in full sun or light dappled shade, Euphorbia 'Miners Merlot' thrives in a dry or free-draining soils, making this hardy perennial a must-have for water-conscious gardens, gravel gardens, and low-maintenance Mediterranean-themed planting schemes. Cut the flowered stems right back to the base in late summer to enjoy the smart rosettes of foliage for the rest of the year—those velvety shades will look stunning in the golden autumn sunshine. Just be sure to wear gloves when pruning them back, as the sap of Euphorbia 'Miners Merlot' is irritant.

Useful information

    • Soak your Euphorbia 'Miners Merlot' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Spurge" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
