Regarding this, is Euphorbia a sun or shade?
Euphorbias in general are sun lovers, though some will tolerate partial shade. Those with deep-purple or reddish foliage will have more-intense coloring if planted in full sun.
Herein, what conditions do Euphorbia like?
Euphorbias generally require a sunny position and fertile, well-drained soil. However, some varieties are shade tolerant and will thrive beneath trees and shrubs, as ground cover.
Are Euphorbia perennials?
Euphorbia myrsinites is a low growing evergreen perennial with trailing stems, covered with fleshy grey-blue, pointed leaves, tipped by yellowish green flowers in spring.
Make sure your “clay pot” has drainage holes. Fertilizer: Provide Euphorbia trigona with a light feeding of balanced water-soluble succulent fertilizer monthly during the spring and summer. Reduce watering and do not fertilize at all during the cooler months (fall and winter).
New leaves will grow at the top of the stem in a couple months. In nature, I can grow to be as tall as 30 feet. Indoors in a container, I will grow fast and can get to be 5-8 feet.
Some euphorbias do very well in shade, particularly those that flower in spring. They can be divided into deciduous plants, ones that die back in winter, and evergreens with year-round foliage. The earliest to flower is Euphorbia epithymoides, previously called Euphorbia polychroma.
Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’ is a compact, shade-loving euphorbia, bearing acid-yellow blooms in contrast with purple, strappy foliage. It’s a good choice for growing at the front of a border, but is also suitable for using as groundcover in gardens with poor, dry soil, especially in partial shade.
