Golden-Yellow Flowers

“There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were
to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.”
~ Mirabel Osler ~

If you want a display of bright golden-yellow flowers over a perfect cushion of light green leaves, plant a Euphorbia polychroma.

  2. Very bright and cheery - about how long will they flower?

  3. You got it, Debra. Yellow - and orange, too!

    Jane, if my memory serves me right, the blooms lasted for about a month. Not terribly long, but they were gorgeous while they lasted. After the plant finishes blooming, you trim back the plant hard, to about 4 inches, and it grows new bushy foliage. In the fall, the leaves are a beautiful red.
