Spring flowering euphorbias are my favourites for an early splash of colour in the garden.

They establish readily, are drought tolerant and provide a long show in interest. They happily thrive alongside cultivars of lavender, cistus, hebe, verbascum, helianthemum, romneya, echium, phormium, phlomis and eryngium – all great examples of drought tolerant plants.
