Euphorbia stricta ‘Golden Foam’ (Golden Foam Spurge) [12 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these challenging seeds only for gardeners who have experience with handling seeds that benefit from or require a chilling period. 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 natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.
If you sow after January, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about 3 months.
It is possible that these seeds could germinate (though perhaps at a less than optimal percentage) 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 providing the artificial chilling period. Even then, sprouting may be slow and irregular.
Once you do get them to sprout, the plants will likely self-sow freely.
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. 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. Full sun to light shade.
Harvested in August 2023. At least 12 seeds. (Collecting these tiny seeds is very difficult, which is why there are so few. But you really just need to get one plant to flower and let it drop its seeds; then you should have all of the plants you need without having to sow again in following years.)
