Description

‘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. 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.

Care

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.
