This is what the bunnies left me! I planted three Euphorbia amygdaloides purpurea OUTSIDE the rabbit fence - I thought it would be safe as it has nasty latex-y sap. Went away for a week-end and came back to a row of stumps! I had to move them into hospital - where they have made a good recovery.

I presume you mean you moved the Euphorbia to hospital...

not the rabbits. ;o)

Errr, you're right - I wouldn't treat any rabbits so kindly! The Euphorbia plants now have leaves again and are about 5" high - and are very bushy :-)

Glad to know your plants survived their exciting adventures ;o)

I'm looking forward to admiring the flowers next spring - I think they've had it for this year, but the leaves are quite interesting in their own right.
