'Ascot Rainbow' Euphorbia PP21401, also known as Flowering Spurge, has colorful, variegated foliage that lasts from spring to fall. Green leaf blades trimmed with creamy yellow edges transition to deep pink as cooler temperatures arrive. Its foliage is topped with petite, variegated lime green flowers that feature crimson red centers. Flowering Spurge is easy-to-grow, drought tolerant and unappealing to deer. (Euphorbia martinii)

Plant Information

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. Always handle Spurge plants with care, as they contain a milky sap that can irritate your eyes, nose and mouth. Some species have a poisonous sap.

        Purchased two of these plants, and one died. The plant itself is lovely, just wish the other didn't die:( Luckily, American Meadows refunded the one that died.

          This plant will not make it through the winter if you are zone 5 or 6 or colder. i have tried for many winters using mulch or landscape cloth or other protections and it just won't make it.
          However it is a beautiful plant through out the growing season and fills in nicely and compliments other plants. I do love it.

            I bought this early and planted as soon as it came. I was able to transplant it to completed rain garden three months later.

              Comments about American Meadows Ascot Rainbow Euphorbia:

              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.

                  Q & A

                  Plant With These:

                  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).

                  Find Your Planting Zone:
