Cool temperate Euphorbias

Yellow flowers of Euphorbia x martinii 'Ascot Rainbow', burgundy flowers of Euphorbia characias 'Blackbird' and white flowers of Euphorbia characias ssp. wulfenii 'Silver Swan' provide a wonderful display of flowers now and for the rest of the year provide interest from their variegated foliage. All grow to about 60cm x 60 cm and are frost hardy, pest and disease free and prefer a dry well drained soil.I planted the three together in front of a low hedge of the grey Plectranthus argentatus.
