Random post, not really anything other than a recommendation I guess.

Saw on GW Adam frost had a nice one outside his place and thought I’d have a go.

Here it is near the badly placed canna, planted end of June last year.

And now....

What a fantastic plant, awesome colour.

if you don’t have one, get one!

    I have recently planted one, looking forward to seeing it look like that soon @Aaron 583 :)

    I love them. They self seed which is a bonus. Yours has nice fine leaves, do you know what cultivar it was?

    All I have on the order is

    Euphorbia characias Wulfenii

    It's a great plant, certainly adds some colour in April – just mind the sap. Here's mine after it had been planted for 2 years

    Fantastic, I like the way the bracts keep spreading and stretching out on each stem over the weeks. Looks like it’s going to be a beast!

    I'm prefering your crocosmia

    I love them too - brilliant colour so early, and for so long 😎

     Thanks @Fire re crocosmia 
    it was one of those where I had just leaves the first year and they really came out and flowered the second

    If you have a boggy area, Euphorbia pallustris is very nice too.
    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

    have just bought a Eu Pallustris punkdoc- but had a sunny spot in mind for it.... should I be reconsidering?
