The gold and green foliage transforms throughout the seasons with pink and red blushes in the cooler months. This plant is frost hardy, dry tolerant, wind tolerant and needs little in the way of care. Spring to summer they are crowned with chartreuse, cream and gold bracts punctuated with little red flowers.
Australian bred by renowned plantsman, David Glenn, this sensational Euphorbia is now loved around the world.
Euphorbia ‘Ascot Rainbow’ is easy care, even in moderately fertile to poor soils as long as it has good drainage. It thrives in a sunny spot. It also grows well in containers. They are tolerant of coastal conditions and become dry tolerant as they establish. A light sprinkling of an all purpose fertiliser in spring is pretty much all they need to be happy. It will be larger in the garden than if it is grown in a pot where it will be more compact.
Plant in a sunny spot, if they are in too much shade the green colouring will dominate the foliage. Cut spent flower stems back to the base of the plant if they don’t please you – don’t forget to wear gloves as the sap irritates the skin as with all Euphorbias.
Euphorbia ‘Ascot Rainbow’ thrives in coastal areas, Mediterranean gardens, pots, beds, shrub border, fence lines or xeriscapes. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it can be relied upon.
