First-ever from seed

We are honored to offer Park gardeners the first-ever Euphorbia graminea available from seed. Glitz is a glorious variety, sporting masses and masses of tiny white blooms held at the very tip of finely cut, pastel-green stems. It's the perfect container choice, standing well on its own or making a fine companion to all your flowering and foliage plants.

Glitz earns its names with hundreds upon hundreds of tiny, slender-petaled, bright white blooms. Beautiful at all times, they show to special effect at twilight, when they linger in the gloaming like a thousand points of light. Be sure to place Glitz on the deck or patio where evening entertaining can be expected; your guests will shower it with compliments.

Glitz reaches 10 to 14 inches high and spreads 12 to 18 inches wide, but will adjust to the available space if planted in a tight container. It spills delightfully over the sides of baskets and window boxes, mounding gracefully. And it works nicely in garden beds, too. In containers, think of it as a fresh alternative to Baby's Breath, offering airy leaf-like foliage and starry blooms as a backdrop to larger flowers or more dramatic variegated foliage plants.

This euphorbia is a sun-lover, but tolerates a bit of shade, particularly in hot-summer climates. It is very resistant to the effects of heat and drought, so you don't have to worry about it looking exhausted on those blazing July days. Consider it a friend to your sweet potato vines, calibrachoa, petunias, geraniums, and more.

And this seed is so easy to grow. Sow it indoors, dropping one seed into each Bio Sponge of your Bio Dome, or sowing in seed flats. Germination takes about a week, and in no time you have a thriving seedling. Don't transplant into the garden or outdoor containers until the temperature stays reliably above 60 degrees Fahrenheit; Glitz doesn't like the cold. But if it is kept warm, given plenty of sun and a good place to grow, it will begin blooming in just 10 to 13 weeks from seed. You're going to love this versatile, beautiful annual.
