For Bornagain !


For Bornagain !

I looked this plant up B.A and it IS a Euphorbia ! I am amazed as I've not seen this one before !
Its an annual called Euphorbia " Diamond Frost " and flowers for months ! It is also drought tolerant ! I think I only watered it a couple of times in as many months and it never alters ! I suppose , being an annual, it won't live into the next year !

I just googled, it's a perennial, but not hardy. Sarah Raven uses them to underplant roses. They are very easy to take cuttings from apparently, you just put them in water. You can also use them as house plants, so don't throw yours away:-)

Thanks BA, but do I keep cuttings indoors over winter ? perhaps in our conservatory ! Its been the easiest plant I've ever had !
It does sound too good to be true Amy ! If my cuttings are successful I will share them out !

Yes indoors Rose and apparently it won't root in anything but water! :-)
