Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost' - Beautiful and Deer Resistant too

White flowers in this pic are Diamond Frost  


My favorite deer resistant annual flower is
Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost'.


This plant, which looks like airy Baby's Breath, made its debut in 2005 in the Proven Winners catalog of annual flowers and since then has become the Most Award Winning Plant in Proven Winners History. Why?



Well, besides having a nice mounded habit to it (about 12 to 18 inches tall),  it blooms continuously in clouds of airy white flowers through summer heat and drought.

It stays beautiful without deadheading. And it is deer resistant!

You can fill in plant beds in the middle of a combination.

It tolerates temp down to 40°F  and you can plant it in sun or partial shade.


It blooms nonstop from spring until frost. What more could you ask?


Euphorbia is known as spurge and was named after an ancient Greek physician, Euphorbus, who gave an herbal remedy made from a spurge to treat a king's swollen belly. The common name spurge also comes from its use as an herbal purgative.

It sells out! Go grab some....
