This handsome #euphorbia has upright stems clothed with whorls of fleshy, glaucous leaves and topped with huge heads of chartreuse-green flowers with bronze eyes from March to May. Loves full sun and is a fast growing perennial.
Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diable D'Or- Always good in a mellow planting scheme, with its deep copper foliage and ruby fruit clusters/ The glowing tips of the shoots are particularly vibrant in early summer.
This pic from the Andre Eve rose garden in Pithiviers has a look we aspire to...and on occasion, momentarily, we achieve. Must visit sometime in this, the home of the eponymous almond pastry, another French thing of beauty.
