‘Diamond Frost’ euphorbia steals the show today

on

Euphorbias are the girls strutting their stuff right now. They loved the recent turn to cooler weather and that dose of fertilizer from 2 weeks ago. They are huge with a span of 3 feet at least. I have ‘Diamond Frost’ and ‘Breathless Blush’.

I’m loving that the petunias are enjoying another round of blooms. They are always a deeper prettier color in the cooler days of autumn. Love how they mix with the narrow leaf zinnia.

My autumn mums look especially nice all bloomed out. I got them from Kevin Campbell at Campbell Family Nursery in Harmony, NC. He grew them and I’ve never had better! Long lasting and gorgeous.

  2. I love euphorbia. I’ve only ever planted the “Diamond Frost” variety. I’ve only used it in pots and never in the landscape.

    The petuias and zinnias are pretty together! I love the smelll of petunias.

    1. Sharrieboberry….they grow larger in the ground. Give it a try next year. ‘Breathless Blush’ has pink tinged blooms and a dark vein running down the center of the leaves.
