Euphorbia Royal Velvet
Euphorbia Royal Velvet is a beautiful dwarf cultivar. The new leaves have a soft purple blush that contrasts nicely with the blue-gray leaves. The plants are 12" tall by 18" wide, the flowers push up to 24". Euphorbia Royal Velvet is the result of a cross between cultivars of Euphorbia characias and Euphorbia martinii. This Euphorbia will do best in well drained soil. Plants prefer to dry out between watering cycles. Blossoms are produced on spikes at the ends of the branches in late Spring and into Summer. Once a branch blooms it can be cut to near the base. Plants are hardy when temperatures dip into the high teens. Euphorbia sap is caustic, care should be taken to keep it off your skin.
