Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Excalibur Spurge, Spurge
The new leaves of this striking hybrid spurge are tinted with red in spring, then change to rich blue-green, marked with a central line of ivory and thin, burgundy edges. Yellow tones develop with the cool temperatures of autumn. The lance-shaped leaves encircle thick, upright, pink stems which are topped with a display of brilliant yellow-green flowerheads in early to midsummer.
Provide 'Froeup' with full to part sun and well-drained soil of average to modest fertility. Wet, poorly-drained conditions should be avoided. If desired, stems may be cut to the ground after flowering to rejuvenate the foliage. This perennial is a terrific choice for rock gardens and well-drained mixed borders. This cultivar is sometimes sold under the name ‘Excalibur’.
