Over the years I’ve admired the many euphorbias I’ve seen gracing sunny urban lots here in Seattle. I’ve always considered them a sun plant, but I spied this variety at the nursery that supposedly accepts part sun, and decided to go for it. I planted two on the shadier north side of the house, but they’ll get a pretty good blast of midday sun in the summer when the sun’s path moves higher into the sky. Hopefully they do well, as I think they’ll provide some much needed texture and height along the narrow garden bed next to the fence.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
