‘Bonfire’ Cushion Spurge – Euphorbia polychroma

Full Sun Part Sun

This item cannot be purchased online but is available in our stores.


One of the best landscape plants for all-season color. ‘Bonfire’ is one of the most colorful spurges ever invented! The top growth is a fantastic combination of deep purple, red, and orange leaves with a touch of chartreuse, while the undergrowth is green. The foliage tends to deepen to burgundy red at the height of summer. Turns rich red in the fall.

In late spring, crackling sulfur yellow bracts light up the whole plant for several weeks. But really, who needs flowers with foliage like this?!

‘Bonfire’ is a selection from E. polychroma.
