Euphorbia palustris is a bushy, clump-forming, herbaceous perennial that blooms from late spring to early summer. Its clusters of soft, bright acid yellow-green flowers are borne on erect stems, above fresh-looking, lance-shaped leaves that fade to a yellow-orange colour in autumn. Also known as Marsh Spurge, Euphorbia palustris adds a splash of welcome colour to flower beds and cottage-style herbaceous borders from spring to autumn and is one of the Spurges that can tolerate a heavier soil. Its preference is for a position in full sun and permanently moist soil. An eye-catching, robust plant that is popular with gardeners, Euphorbia palustris has earned an 'RHS Award of Garden Merit'.
