Euphorbia 'Glacier Blue'

The icy blue foliage of Euphorbia 'Glacier Blue' contrasts nicely with the delicate, creamy white margins and is impressive in all seasons. The flower bracts produced in spring echo the foliage coloragion, giving additional seasonal interest. It makes a graceful textural element in containers, borders, rockeries, and is also reasonably drought tolerant. It has good vigor and a stronger habit than other variegated Euphorbia. The cool, icy blue colors are well suited for combining with other varieties to make attractive container gardens that provide interest throughout the year. Remove the spring flowers when they become shabby and avoid contact with the milky sap, which is a skin irritant. For the growers: monitor for mites during hot weather; they are easily overlooked on heavily variegated plants. Take extra care to avoid root diseases; keep the crown above the soil level at planting and avoid over-watering, and keep the fertility levels low.
