Euphorbia stricta ‘Golden Foam’ (Golden Foam Spurge) [12 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some patience and experimentation. The easiest approach is to surface-sow (do not cover) the seeds in fall to early winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.
If you sow after January, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 3 months before moving it to a warm, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)
It is possible that these seeds could germinate if you start them in warm, moist, bright conditions. But if you try that and no seedlings appear within a month or so, then try the refrigerator-chilling approach above before moving them back to warmth and light. Even then, sprouting may be slow and irregular.
Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Golden foam spurge (Euphorbia stricta ‘Golden Foam’) produces clumps of upright, red-tinged stems ranging from 1 to 2 feet tall. They are topped with clouds of small, bright yellow bracts from late spring well into summer. Full sun to light shade. Some sources list this as a perennial, but it seems to act more like an annual or biennial in my Zone 6/7 garden. I suspect this plant might actually be E. serrulata, but it mostly goes by E. stricta ‘Golden Foam’ in the trade.
Harvested in 2020. At least 12 seeds. (Extracting these tiny seeds from their capsules is tremendously time-consuming, which is why there are so few. But you really just need to get one plant to flower and let it drop the seeds; then you will have all of the plants you need without having to sow again in following years.)
