yew-FOR-bee-ah grif-FITH-ee-eye
Genus:  Euphorbia
This species has red stems and dark green leaves, which emerge in spring with a reddish tinge. In early summer, it bears conspicuous bracts of orange-red or red.

Care:  Prefers moist soil in dappled shade.
Propagation:  Start seed when ripe or in spring; divide in early spring.
Problems:  Nematodes, spider mites, aphids, mealybugs, fungal and bacterial diseases.
