When you think of blossoms, what colors come to mind? Probably red, pink, purple, but does lime green? The Martin’s Spurge will surely make green your new favorite flower color. This plant becomes bejeweled in dense clusters of chartreuse flowers in late springtime. These bright and cheerful blossoms are known for their starbursts of burgundy at their centers.
It’s no wonder butterflies find these flowers so attractive. They’re irresistibly fascinating to them. And their cuplike shape makes them the perfect spot for butterflies to rest while having a quick drink.
These appealing perennials are covered in long, leathery gray-green foliage that flushes with red during the springtime. Even their stems offer visual interest, ranging from yellow to green to red.

They even do well in containers if you want to add a bit of brightness to your window planter or balcony planter. This plant grows well in mild winters and will keep your garden cheery all year around.
This brilliant, highly colored plant is a petite delight that will add excitement and energy to your landscape.
