This Euphorbia variety is a mutant of REDWING 'Charam'. It has kept the compact round shape.
BLACKBIRD is remarkable for its very dark purple young foliage, which gets darker in a sunny position. Little by little, the foliage turns bronze green, and sometimes red in winter.
The flowering, which is characteristic to the Euphorbia, lasts from March to May, the bracts turning red, orange, yellow and green on the purple red stems. BALCK BIRD is very floriferous.
Its evergreen foliage, the coulour variations through the year, the attractive contrast it gives due to the numerous flower heads in spring, make BLACK BIRD a choice perennial in beds or in pots.
No particular pruning necessary.
