Glacier Blue Euphorbia

Another great Euphorbia for the drought tolerant garden. I have Glacier Blue planted in the conifer area of the back garden where it does get some shade, but it does not mind. Like all Euphorbias they will take full sun. Introduced in 2007, I must have purchased it right after that. The brightness of Glacier Blue is perfect to add to a perennial bed of pinks, yellows, and purples. It is a very compact plant reaching 18" x 18", which to me is not a large plant. Another useage for Glaicer Blue is in a container with trailing annuals. The Glacier Blue is evergreen, so even in the dead of Winter you can have some interest in your container.

USDA hardiness zone 6 to zone 11
