Hi Dotty, you have some lovely ones.
I like them alot. Do you have Euphorbia characias wulfenii in your collection. I've grown some from seed this year.

love the flower form BUT hate the permanent mark on my face from the sap. A nasty chemical burn 11yrs ago :o( I will always have a mark on my cheek unless i have cosmetic surgery. so be warned......

Am being tempted to add them into my garden too,Dotty, thanks to GoY! I had read that the sap was an irritant, but never knew it could mark so severely~that sounds very much like Buyer Beware, doesn't it?

Thanks all, forgot to add Fireglow it is tucked in behind Gary (the Gunnera) and Yes Dawn we do grow Wulfenii it is enormous, will post a pic for you to see. Louise it is on the list!! Grindle Tasmanian Tiger sounds interesting, would be good for our jungle garden lol SBG I must remember your advice regarding the sap.....

I'll look out for it Dotty.

the sap is worse if it is then exposed to sunlight apparently. and of course thats what i did. the mark is like a dry patch on my cheek that is a slightly darker tone. I am aware of it but most people dont notice it thankfully.
