Euphorbia cyparissias

LoxleyLoxley Posts: 5,237

Hi all. Someone gave me a pot of E cyparissias... I like it but had never considered planting it, due it's invasiveness.

Is it possible to keep it in bounds? Or would I be better off keeping it in a pot and deadheading it... Or getting rid entirely!

    I have some bits of Euphobia c. Fen's Ruby which I use in places where not much grows. It's also good along the top of my rear fence which is like a long 'window box'. It does spread around, but it's easy enough to pull out. That's how I got all my little pieces of it - it grows at the entrance driveway where I work, and there are always little seedlings!  I expect you could keep it potted. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    If it's easy enough to control, I might risk it, because I do like it. It's not like I have acres of border to weed - it's only about 15ft x 3ft.
