Today’s Favorite Plant

This is a new spurge for me.

Euphorbia x martinii / Ascot Rainbow /Martin’s spurge

It is a dwarf evergreen that is drought tolerant and deer resistant.

Win, win, win.

It is toxic, so it will not be anywhere near the bunny yard.

It caught my eye due to its lovely variegated leaves and shape.

It definitely stands out among other plants.

Luckily, I planted it in a newly-created feature spot near the entrance.

Wow is it showing off now.   Yes, now, when everything else is wilting and brown.

The lovely leaves are blushing pink.

‘Ascot Rainbow’ Euphorbia x martinii

It is truly a bright spot.

I look forward to seeing its flowers in the spring, but I can’t imagine it being any prettier than it is right now.
