An incredibly diverse range of plants, over 1500 different species, native to almost every country the world. From trees down to small cacti like succulents. This is reflected in Beth's garden, with E. characias subsp. wulfenii in the dry garden, E. palustris in the water garden, E. amygdaloides var. robbiae in the woodland, E. myrsinities in the scree garden and E. cornigera in the new reservoir garden and many more! With such a range of plants available, there will be something to suit your garden, or as a house plant. Foliage is often neat, with blue-grey colouring typical for plants enjoying a hot dry site, some others will colour up when emerging or during autumn. Flowers are typically small, but in large quantities and surrounded by colourful bracts, providing quite a show. The Christmas poinsettia, is Euphorbia pulcherrima, native to Mexico and Guatemala. Flor de Nochebuena, flower of Christmas Eve!
The white-milky sap can irritate skin and eyes, so wearing gloves and other protective equipment is recommended.
