Euphorbias are a varied genus of plants that include cacti-like succulents and the leathery-leaved wood spurges that we are more familiar with from our gardens. Most species produce tiny flowers surrounded by long-lasting, conspicuous bracts. These appear in various colours - red, purple, yellow and the glorious acid-green that we most associate with euphorbias.
Euphorbia cyparissias 'Fen's Ruby' has rather delicate foliage for a euphorbia. Linear, red-tinged leaves are crowded on flowing stems giving a feathery appearance; yellowy green flowers.

|Euphorbia amygdaloides 'Purpurea' is a cultivar of the Wood spurge with dark purple-red, evergreen, leathery leaves and cymes of sulfur-yellow flowers - a stunning contrast.|
|Euphorbia palustris is unusual in liking damp places, but like most herbaceous euphorbias it makes a clump of ruch green foliage, with bright yellow bracts that give colour for several months. In the autumn the leaves change to orange and red, so it is a really valuable and colourful plant.|
