Mild Winter Perennials

Euphorbia x martini 'Blackbird ('Nothowlee') PP 17,178'

Euphorbia 'Blackbird' with it's dark purple tinted foliage, sets off brighter hues nearby. We have this in a bed with gravelly soil close to our house, and it has wintered over beautifully for the past 2 years. Flowering bracts will form on the previous season's growth, providing bright yellow green contrast to the dark purple leaves. Plants grow 18" tall and wide. Alos a really good choice for containers as it looks great all season long!
