Product information "Euphorbia characias 'Black Pearl'"

Mediterranean spurge is distinguished by its exceptional inflorescences. It has rather clump-like growth, which is relatively upright. From April onwards, it forms showy panicles above the grey-blue foliage. The bright yellow, greenish bracts are like petals and they have striking, black nectar glands; these glands are in the centre and resemble pearls. This makes a delightful contrast. Mediterranean spurge prefers locations in full sun with well-drained, not too fertile soil. Euphorbia characias 'Black Pearl' can be used in large perennial beds and natural plantings. It is also suited for container plantings. A winter protection in very rough climates is advised.
