Euphoria over Euphorbia
Euphoria 'Ascot Rainbow'
Fellow blogger Jenny from Rock Rose in Austin posted recently about the Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow' she brought home from Seattle last summer. She did recall correctly that one of the little beauties jumped off the table at Dragonfly Farms and into my hands. I had no reason whatsoever to believe that this Euphoria would be happy on my corner of Katy, since I had never seen it offered at my local nurseries. Like Jenny, I was compelled to try, and also like Jenny, I am happy to say that the plant is flourishing. Hers is showing a bit more red of eye ... perhaps she's fertilizing it with tequila?!
