Euphorbia ' robbiae'


By Simbad

Euphorbia ' robbiae' (Euphorbia)

Can be a bit rampant, but forgive it as it flowers for such a long time in spring.

Very nice. I've got this or something similar - I find it very useful.
Kathy/Amy: Do you have a type of Euphorbia (I think this is what it is) that is like a single spike that pops the seeds out in Summer - the seeds fly all over the place and you actually hear the pods go 'pop'.

Thanks Amy :-)
I have one Dawn ,actually forever pulling it up, quite thick stem grey colour , with long oblong leaves all up the stem and green flowers, don't know if its the one you mean, I didn't plant it just arrived, never heard the seeds pop but don't usually let it get to that stage,lol.

Thats the one Kathy, like you say, they appear especially on disturbed ground. We've laughed before cos the seeds have actually hit us, lol. Are they a type of Euphorbia do you think. I keep pulling them up too. ha ha.

Yes think they are Dawn don't know what they're called though, some wild form, sounds like the seeds are pretty dangerous, could take your eye out,lol.
