Siberian spurge, Euphorbia seguieriana subsp. niciciana, is a particularly handsome spurge, with an upright, bushy habit. Its delicate, blue-green leaves grow on reddish stems, and its contrasting lime-green flowers appear from late spring until the first frosts. It’s the perfect foil for bold colours such as reds and purples, and also works well with ornamental grasses. It makes an excellent cut flower.
