Euphorbia ‘Royal Velvet’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


Tailored evergreen velveteen leaves of rich deep red provide the perfect foil for its spring floral display. In spring, its 8″ chartreuse-colored flower spikes have dramatic dark maroon eyes. This cross between E. characias 'Portuguese Velvet' and E. x martinii 'Red Martin' has the best of both worlds! Requires good drainage.
