Euphorbia griffithii 'Fireglow' (Spurge)

Spurge 'Fireglow'


Regarded as one of the easiest and most reliable spurges, Euphorbia griffithii 'Fireglow' is a vigorous rhizomatous perennial noted for its showy orange-red flowers and red-tinged leaves. Emerging rich bronzy-red in spring, the foliage of narrow, lance-shaped leaves turns mid-green in summer before warming up to crimson red in the fall. Borne on upright, reddish stems, vivid orange bracts, held in umbel-like clusters, appear in early summer, and continue for many weeks. They are excellent for cutting. Euphorbia griffithii 'Fireglow' deserves a place in every garden with damp soil.

  • Forms a bushy, upright mound and typically grows up to 24-36 in. tall (60-90 cm) and 24-30 in. wide (60-75 cm). Clumps take a few years to settle in and develop to mature size.
  • Remaining attractive during all its growing season, this remarkable plant is resilient to most pests and diseases, is deer & rabbit tolerant and is easy to care for.
  • A full sun or light shade lover, it thrives in moist, well-drained soils. May be invasive on light soils
  • Perfect for slopes, beds and borders, coastal gardens or cottage gardens.
  • Easily divided in early spring, every 4 to 5 years. Propagate by division in early spring or take basal cuttings in spring or early summer; dip cut surfaces in charcoal or lukewarm water to prevent bleeding.
  • Cut back flowering shoots to ground level in late summer or fall
  • All parts are highly toxic by ingestion.
  • Native of the Himalayas and western Asia
