Other Varieties From Proven Winners

Both of these varieties are grown in exactly the same manner as this year’s trial.
And both have been excellent in my garden.

I’ve grown this annual Euphorbia in the past in containers quite successfully, and this year the trials are in–ground  rather than containers.

Plant Reviews:

2018: Euphorbia ‘Diamond Mountain’

Proven Winners provided two sample plants  in the spring of 2018 for review purposes.  These will be available in garden centers in spring 2019.
Two plants were planted in early June because of the late season and will be evaluated, and pictures provided at the end of the growing season here.
