It is known for its attractive foliage and bright yellow flowers, which make it a popular choice for gardens, borders, and other landscaping projects. This plant is native to central and southeastern Europe and is well adapted to a wide range of growing conditions.

    The plant typically grows to a height of 12-18 inches and spreads about 18-24 inches wide. It has an upright, clumping habit and produces stunning, dark green foliage that turns a fiery red-orange in the fall. The leaves are slightly hairy and have a delicate, almost fern-like appearance. The stems are reddish-brown, which adds to the plant's overall visual appeal.

    In late spring to early summer, Euphorbia polychroma produces clusters of bright yellow flowers that are surrounded by showy, green bracts. The flowers are long-lasting and can remain in bloom for several weeks. They are also attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies, making this plant a valuable addition to any pollinator garden.

    Euphorbia polychroma is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow in a variety of soil types, including well-drained soil. It prefers full sun to partial shade and requires minimal watering once established. The plant is also tolerant of deer and other wildlife, making it an excellent choice for naturalized areas or wildlife gardens.

    One thing to note about Euphorbia polychroma is that it contains a milky sap that can be irritating to the skin and eyes, so it is important to wear gloves when handling the plant or avoid planting it in areas where children or pets may come into contact with it.

    Overall, Euphorbia polychroma is an attractive, hardy, and low-maintenance perennial plant that provides a long-lasting display of color and attracts a variety of pollinators.
