which euphorbia

I want euphorbia in my garden but I want a bee and pollinator attracting variety. Which is best; amygdaloides or epithymoides?

    I doubt it makes much difference from the pollinating side. I'd choose the plant best suited to your situation. Amygdaloides is a woodland wanderer, good in dry shade. Epithymoides is not a wanderer and in my experience, needs slightly better soil, and a bit of sun

    E.characias Black Pearl, looks great in my garden.

    Long lasting flowers and  glaucous leaves.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
