Diamond Snow Euphorbia: A garden game changer

By Norman Winter, Horticulturist, Author, and Speaker | Facebook @NormanWinterTheGarden Guy

Diamond Snow has dramatically changed how we look at euphorbias or that not so glamorous common name of spurge. We all fell madly in love with its sibling Diamond Frost and subsequently gave it hundreds of awards in university trials. Diamond Snow, however, is a game changer.

Though Diamond Snow has only been out two years it is racking up pages of awards, such as Perfect Score All Season at Oklahoma State, Top Performer Biltmore Estate, and Universities like Minnesota, Ohio State, Cornell, Delaware, and Florida just to name a few.

Why you might ask? Well, the Diamond Snow blossoms are double. To the flower border, mixed container or basket, it is a choice as the names suggest, frost or snow. Diamond Frost the original will always have a place, lending the artist touch to mixed plantings. It is like sprinkles, while Diamond Snow is a main course in your designs, it can get a Holy Wow right alongside the most colorful begonia or petunia.
