'Bonfire' cushion spurge (yes, it's a horrible common name) is unusual among the euphorbias due to its lower profile, but its splendid red to burgundy colored leaves will definitely stand out, especially in year-round gardens. Only 18 inches tall, 'Bonfire' starts out with green new growth that soon turns red to orange in the summer then a deep burgundy in the fall and winter. Excellent in borders, container planters, and hanging baskets, the colorful foliage makes it a versatile companion plant. Chartreuse brackets top the foliage in the spring, bringing on bees and butterflies. Drought tolerant once established in the ground, 'Bonfire' actually prefers a bit of shade at the hottest time of the day.
