My Euphorbia ‘Blackbird’ has been in place since 2007. At first, I was disappointed with it because it seemed to have reverted to plain green, losing the deep color for which it was named. Now, as you can see, it is back to earning its name.
Depending upon how the light hits it, it can take on different personalities.
Sometimes it looks almost pink, with droplets of dew refracting the light.
At a time of year when so much has gone dormant, the vigorous presence of ‘Blackbird’ is ever so welcome. The best profile I found was on the Fine Gardening site. Since I’m basically lazy, I’ll send you there to learn more about this satisfying plant. While I’m at it, let me send you to Danger Garden to see what Loree is most in love with this week. Don’t forget to check the comments for links to others’ favorites.
