Euphorbia ‘Copton Ash’
at Digging Dog

Euphorbia

Milkwort

Named after Euphorbus, physician to the king of Mauritania, this robust, sun-loving genus includes the familiar Poinsettia and is over 1600 species strong. Most species have a poisonous milky sap and softly colored bracts that surround subtly defined flowers. Autumn watches their narrow green leaves turn shades of red, orange and yellow.

Honoring plantsman Kent Copton, who developed both a garden and a nursery in Faversham, England, this well-groomed shrubby Euphorbia produces finely hewn cool bluish green foliage and billowing masses of lime-green flowers in an endless summer procession. Compared to E. ‘Dean’s Hybrid’ or E. ‘Blue Haze’, its needle-like linear leaves are longer, while its larger semievergreen mound surpasses E. ‘Limewall’s. For a lovely floral pairing, ‘Copton Ash’ can be planted with Geranium sanguineum var. lancastriense along a pathway, amidst rock work or in a planter.

Blooms May-October

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
