Still hanging on - Euphorbia "Diamond Frost"



This tough little annual is still going strong after two light frosts. It is now a "must have" on my annual list. It blooms non-stop and looks great in containers.

  1. Yes, this is a must for me too. I have three containers full of it. Some people grow it in the shade, mine is in full Florida sun and does great. I am trying to over winter one of them.

  2. I also can't say enough good things about it, except I wish it came in another color. The first time I saw them was planted with Poinsettias, it was a nice combo.

  3. My "Diamond Frost" is still going strong as well - one in a hanging basket and the other in a large container with geraniums - which are also still going strong. Maybe I'll try bringing it inside to over winter.

  4. It is a marvelous plant. I use it every year. The one with the dark leaves does as well plus you have the darker leaves.

  5. I have not tried this although I see it in lots of my gardening mags. I am always for a tough plant. It's on my list!

  7. It is amazing. Have two friends who have a garden on James Island used in sweeps in a gray-white-blue garden. It always looks like mist rising early morning!
