Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae

Wood Spurge

'Mrs. Robb's Bonnet' Wood Spurge has chartreuse yellow flower bracts in May and green evergreen foliage. Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae is stoloniferous, producing new plants from runners.  Native to woodland margins in Europe, western Asia and the Mediterranean.  It was discovered by botanist Mary Ann Robb near Istanbul, Turkey.  Mrs. Robb brought cuttings and seeds back to her garden in Liphook, Hampshire in a hat box in the late 1800's; hence to common name.  The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College uses this extensively in dry shade.
