Euphorbia 'Miners Merlot' ('KMMM024'PBR)
True to its name, deep red, merlot wine-coloured new shoots grow in spring, before the leaves fade to a deep green colour that contrasts with the permanently deep red stems and bright, lime-yellow flowers. Hardy and easy to grow, this is a great contrast plant for borders and patio pots. The cooler the weather, the more striking the foliage. (Photo courtesy of Ball Colegrave)
Keep well watered until firmly established, feed with a good liquid fertiliser every 2 weeks in the flowering season.
Soak plant thoroughly in its pot before planting, dig a hole large enough to comfortably accommodate the root ball. Ensure the surrounding soil and the top of the root ball are at the same level. Fill around the root ball with soil mixed with good planting compost and a suitable fertliser. Firm well and water generously
