WHAT: Euphorbia dulcis or commonly known as sweet spurge has bright yellow flowers that form in April bringing a terrific burst of color, form and height to the garden or border.

It is a deciduous perennial with leaves that turn yellow then red in the fall, so it is definitely one of those plants that can bridge the seasons and provide beauty for many months.

SUN OR SHADE: Euphorbia dulcis performs best in full to part sun.

SIZE: Its mature size is approximately 3 feet tall by 2 feet wide.

SEE IT: At the WSU Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden at Jennings Memorial Park, 915 Armar Road, Marysville.
