Euphorbia “Redwing” is a hybrid spurge, as if you didn’t know that. It is very similar to Euphorbia characias, but for the red bloom structures. I wonder what those are called?

And it is hybridized from… E. amygdaloides x E. martinii, which we learned yesterday is a hybrid from E. amygdaloides and E. characias. Very interesting.

The unique characteristic of this variety is the red flower stems, which were green last fall, but turn bright red in late winter, even before the profusion of chartreuse or as some would say sulfur-yellow blooms in spring. I had to get down on the ground to capture the foliage under those all-encompassing blooms. These turn out to be quite attractive to bees. Yay!
