Euphorbia Miner's Merlot Spurge


Maintains an Overall Dark Appearance, Even in Summer

Euphorbia Miner's Merlot Spurge is a mostly evergreen to semi-evergreen perennial offering 3 seasons to year-round interest. Foliage and flowers are equally attractive. Its whorled, narrow, linear to obovate leaves emerge dark wine red and maintain the color on the back side of the leaf throughout the season, so the foliage maintains an overall dark appearance, even in summer, unusual for a dark-foliaged euphorbia. Long-lasting and showy, frothy, bottlebrush-like, chartreuse to lime green flower spires sit atop sturdy dark red stems from late summer through fall, blooming week upon week, providing seemingly endless cut flowers.

This herbaceous plant, also known as wood spurge, is highly versatile. Euphorbia Miner's Merlot has a mounding and rounded habit that adds substance and texture to the garden. Easy care, it prefers full to dappled sunlight and dry to medium, well-drained soil.

It is heat and drought tolerant, so Euphorbia Miner's Merlot Spurge is perfect for a xeriscape or rock garden, but it's also deer resistant, so it's nice in any bed or border and even in containers.

*Caution: Broken stems exude a substance that can be toxic and irritating to the skin. Use gloves when handling.
