Product Details

For a bracing blast of color that begins in late spring and early summer, it is tough to rival the lime green flowers of long-blooming, ground-covering, weed-smothering Euphorbia amygdaloides subsp. robbiae. This easy-care Wood Spurge, also known as Mrs. Robb’s Hatbox, spreads by underground runners and gradually forms an evergreen mat made up of small rosettes of glossy, deep green, leathery leaves. Content in full sun or part shade, these fuss-free plants also tolerate a wide range of soil conditions from dry to moist. Plant amid purple- and/or white-flowering companions for fabulous color contrast. Deer and rabbits seem to know that all parts of the plant are toxic if ingested, and they avoid it. Winner of RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Cultivated members of this enormous genus are grown for their colorful bracts, which are leaves surrounding the insignificant true flowers, and these bracts are as showy as any bloom. Poinsettias are Euphorbias; it's hard to pack more wallop than that. The perennial varieties generally offer attractive foliage as well. Their milky sap causes skin irritation in some people; wear gloves when planting or deadheading as a precaution.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.
