LEMONS AND LIMES

A lemon shade potentilla at the front of a border. A hardy perennial which is long flowering and will self seed around the garden.



A lime shade euphorbia, in the middle of a border. A compact, suckering variety which can be useful as ground cover. Will tolerate dry shade and looks great in a woodland setting.

Always be cautious when handling euphorbia, the sap is poisonous and irritates the skin.

The potentilla is so pretty, I don't think I have ever seen one before.
The euphorbia is lovely too, I hadn't realised they could cause irritaion, thanks for the tip.
I am very behind with my garden, we are planning to make a big move on it this coming weekend though.
hope you have a good week

I love euphorbias, I'm somehow fascinated by the greenness of their flowers....
