Euphorbia x martinii ‘Ascott Rainbow’


The usual grey-green leaves of the hybrid are edged broadly with cream, a colour that continues up into the flowers.

But the really beautiful thing with this plant is the maroon tint that makes an appearance almost everywhere – the new growth at the tips of the stems, the stems themselves, the eye of the flower, giving a richly colourful combination.

Care Size & Guidance

Care Size & Guidance

Euphorbia ‘Ascot Rainbow’ is a tough plant that is easy to care for. It thrives in both average and dry conditions, making it a great choice for those hot summer months. And, because it’s drought tolerant, you don’t have to worry about watering it too often. Just give it a deep drink every now and then and it will be happy.

Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring or top dress with compost annually to help invigorate the new shoots and blooms.

As with all spurges, the sap in extremely irritant. Avoid contact with hands or eyes. It’s highly recommended to use gloves when handling.

Expert Tip

Plant in the middle of the border to take advantage of its ability to impart a splash of colour. Deadhead the plant as soon as the flowers have faded, as this will encourage more side shoots to grow.
