Japanese spurge plant care. I’ve had problems with it as well. The Spanish Clowance, or purple spurge, and the native coralberry, is now growing in some of my pastures in early summer. The clowance has been for sale from various suppliers for years and they don’t come cheap. Since I have not seen it growing for sale anywhere for quite a while, I assume it has fallen out of favor with the growers. They prefer the much easier to grow marjoram and asparagus for their grazing plants. These can be found for sale from any seed house that supplies plant material for gardeners.

Barry, according to Professor Richard Wortman, I think it is. I don’t have any experience with it, though, so I can’t answer as to its susceptibility to whatever diseases or pests afflict any of these grasses. Your mention of the common marjoram that is a hardy grass species suggests to me that I should cut it at an appropriate time to minimize infection. However, if you know that your problem is one of pests, your best course is to harvest early enough to take those pests with you. Hope this helps.

Hi Alan – One more thing to add – don’t use a spraying cloth in July or August – really cool days with drying, but just hot enough for germination of summer grasses. It’s not a problem if you can use a rake (old fashion type of a handle), but using a small hand-held sprayer will get you right in there and do the job.

Great idea! I just learned that by cutting right before the heat of day, I could help avoid this problem.

Susan — I’ve bought or heard about “berrionas” as a fodder crop for the lambs. We haven’t tried it but I was just thinking that perhaps it could be incorporated into the sheep mix as they would eat the leaves and herbs. Just a thought.

The plant people might also be interested in this: the herb allium sativum, which is one of the major ingredients in Greek mint soup!

I’m a member of a “geriatric” gardening club which meets each week to swap gardening tips. I did tell a few people that I would grow this next year as an experiment. They all told me that I couldn’t grow it here in Portland due to lack of water. I would have to wait until we moved to the Oregon coast. I think they are wrong as this can be used for people who like a healthy, natural diet. One of the ladies also said that there was something that got into the oil that killed it. I can’t remember what that was, but they were afraid to let me use the oil in my diet.

This is an allium that used to grow in my yard. It was all around my house for quite a few years. It was invasive and pretty messy. In my flower garden it only grew to about 18 inches tall. I have no idea what caused it to bloom at that time in the winter as I had not known about it until much later. It lasted until the spring.

During my landscaping, I brought out as many as I could find. I ended up with about a dozen plants, most from seed.

If there is any more information that is needed, I will be happy to help you learn.

Well, I just received my purple clowance seeds, and so far it has set seed. I will report back here in six weeks when it blooms. If I do, I will email you the pictures I took.

If you haven’t tried it by then, I will ask my local plant nursery if they sell it. If they do not, I will tell them that you are interested.

I’ve been toying with the idea of growing Purple Spurge for a while. It’s growing in my mother’s yard, and I was wondering if you knew of any, or could share any good, bad or indifferent information about it?

Hi Steven – I have seen the purple clowance growing in areas of the UK where there are no restrictions on it. I don’t know if there are any nurseries in the UK selling this grass seed, but if there are, I believe I remember reading that it was known there as the ÒsultÓ. I know that it can be useful for cattle, especially at late summer to help them to regain lost weight and to strengthen their immune systems, in large quantities. I personally use it on our sheep. I don’t remember the time to harvest it, but as I said, I don’t use it during summer. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Hi Cindy – I live a little further north, but, the latitude is the same and so is the climate. You may want to mention, if you do, that you are growing them in containers because it looks like you want to plant them in the ground.

I am also interested in learning how to grow this for myself. But in the meantime, I thought I’d try a few different seed suppliers online and see what I could come up with.One of the people I spoke with suggested that I could try to mix the seed I’m currently growing into a corm or tuber. I was also told that Purple Spurge was easy to grow as a pasture grass.

I was also told that it is easy to use as a pasture grass but that it can become invasive and hard to pull out of the ground. I’ve had people tell me that I shouldn’t use it in the pasture during the winter, but I can use it as a fodder crop, if necessary.

I did a little research on Purple Spurge before I bought the seed that I was going to try. Here’s a picture that I found on Google:

I believe I got the Purple Spurge from Oregon State University. That’s
