Euphorbia 'Redwing' is a mound-forming, evergreen perennial suitable for growing at the front of a border, or container on the patio. It bears flower stems during winter, which turn from light green to dark red before bright yellow flowers emerge from March to May.

For best results grow Euphorbia 'Redwing' in moist but well-drained soil in sun to partial shade. Divide in early spring or take basal cuttings in spring and summer. Take care when pruning, as the white latex from cut stems is harmful to eyes and skin, and should not be ingested.
