Plant Details

An invaluable plant for dry shade. Forms a good evergreen ground-cover of attractive glossy-green leaves with small white scented flowers in spring.

Said to need acidic soil, but we have found it quite happy in our neutral PH soil.

Very drought tolerant when established. Good for underplanting shrubs and trees.

From northern China and Japan.

Height: 25cm

Common name(s): Japanese spurge

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
