Flowering Spurge Ascot Rainbow will thrive in sun to partial shade and is drought-tolerant, making it a great addition to most gardens. The gorgeous, variegated foliage lasts all year round, bringing interest to the garden when most plants have gone dormant.

This widely diverse group of plants includes common North American wildflowers plus a whole selection of unique hybrids. All of the flowering spurges insist on fast-draining soils and are dependably drought tolerant. Once happy, this is a carefree plant that adds color almost year round. The big yellow flowers appear in late spring through mid summer. Then with fall temperatures, all the foliage goes bright butter yellow for even more color.

      Comments about American Meadows Flowering Spurge Ascot Rainbow:

      I planned on taking these plants to my beach house once they grew to a desired growth. I planted them in pots in my back yard patio. They remained green with little to no color change. I'm guessing that they needed to be planted in the ground in order to do well. Will transplant them in the Spring and see what happens. I'm sure that they will do better there.

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
