Diamond Frost Without the Frost

I have to give Pam over at Digging a nod for reminding me to mention one of my favorite plants, 'Diamond Frost' euphorbia. Here it is in a garden bed in the Moonlight Garden. It is so wonderfully light and airy that it adds great texture to a garden bed. It is also drought tolerant which we like - a lot!

Here it is in a container mixed in with a spiky yucca.
I love it's versatility too.

This has been such a hot plant this year. I don't have it but may try it next year. Sure looks great with the yucca.

Thanks for the shout-out. I agree that it looks wonderful with the yucca. I may have to try that combo. So are you growing it in sun then?

Sheila said...

Pam, yes it does grow in the sun here, although we are close to the coast and the temperatures never get too high, if that makes a difference.

Sweet!!!

Great post, this is such a wonderful plant!! It just never quits, does it?

I love it too! I have to say though, it did better for me in the ground than in a pot.

Those look really nice, maybe better called 'frosting' rather than 'frost' :)

Now there's a frost I could be happy about!! It's so airy, I can see it combining well with a lot of things. I'm glad you got some rain too. The fire danger had to be scary.

Soft and frilly with the spikes of yucca -- great combo!

I like your uses of this plant! It looks like several of us have discovered this introduction--It's exciting when something so distinctively different comes out, and even more when it doesn't need too much pampering.
