Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow'

full sun
height 50cm
spread 50cm

Euphorbia ‘Ascot Rainbow’ is a favourite the world over. This hardy shrub was selected for its distinctive foliage which changes with the seasons. The foliage displays tones of cream, green and blue merging to stunning red and pink colouring throughout the cooler months of the year. Spikes of flowers in a blend of cream, lime and green appear from late winter through spring.

'Ascot Rainbow' offers extreme tolerance for the hot and dry conditions experienced by Mediterranean gardeners around the world, but can also happily survives frosts, and even snow coverings, as pictured. It truly is a variety for all conditions. With no known pests or diseases and stunning foliage colour throughout the year being highlighted in cooler months of winter. ‘Ascot Rainbow’ with all its attributes is a true performer for the modern garden and landscape.

Low water requirements. 'Ascot Rainbow' is dry tolerant once established. Plant in most soil types that have good drainage. Euphorbias do not like wet feet. Feed in spring with a slow release fertiliser for optimum results. Pruning generally not required although cutting back spent flower stems to base will encourage a bushier habit. Take care to avoid skin contact with the milky sap as it can be irritating to some - wear gloves and dispose of cuttings. CAUTION - Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant.

  • Striking container displays for winter and spring as well as garden plantings
  • Small gardens, patios and courtyards, dry or gravel style gardens or xeriscaping
  • Adding a mediterranean feel to your garden or sunny herbaceous border
  • Year round interest from foliage colour - ideal for structure in perennial borders
  • Coastal regions
