Wood Spurge (Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae) is perfect to plant under large trees.
It spreads by runners to form a thick carpet of evergreen shiny dark green leaves with a host of long-lasting lime-green flowers in early summer.
It will take part to full shade and is drought, deer, and rabbit tolerant.
Wood spurge is toxic to people and animals if ingested.
Wear gloves when dealing with it because the milky sap is a skin irritant.
It has won the Award of Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
