Euphorbia 'Helena's Blush'


Euphorbia 'Helena's Blush'

Grown as an annual here, no one was buying them at the nursery, but I love the color. So I got a few to pot up as house plants for the winter. I think they'll do well that way.

Thank you. As it has gotten cooler, it has darkened to more red, and the tops are a bright green, preparing to bloom I think, like its spring. :-)

Love this....the colours are beautiful, I agree with San, you would have thought they would have sold well.

Thank you. I'm glad to have one at least, and free since they were getting the toss anyway. :-) I think more than anything people here don't know what to do with many of the plants we bring in. As an annual, this is nothing but an accent color, wont bloom til next year but wont survive winter outside. Those who know what it is, know they wont get much out of it unless they need that accent plant or want to bring it inside. I live in the land of petunia baskets and pansy beds. Oh, and delphinium borders. Not much bravery out there. :-) I'm at the nursery now, I hope to change things a bit, get some knowledge out there.

Thanks. I had to, so lovely. I think its very tender, it came as an annual and will be spending the winter indoors. It did drop many leaves getting repotted and moved in, but it looks to be recovering very well. I think it will be happy for years to come. :-) (fingers crossed)
