Can anyone please tell me if this plant can be grown under a leylandii hedge. The ground is very dry and slopes downwards. I need a fastgrowing, preferably evergreen plant, to hold the soil together. Due to the siting of the hedge the plant will be in full sun most of the day. There is an area of about 10mtrs to plant. At what time of the year would I plant the Euphorbia.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

On plant Euphorbia amygdaloides



It will grow well under trees ordinarily but it may struggle with the shallow roots of the Leyland cypress. Plant it whenever available, usually in mid-late spring, at least thats when most garden centres will have it. I think it would still be a good option though and it is quite rampant and tenacious so should do fine.
