    Comments about High Country Gardens Euphorbia Blue Haze:

    In southern Utah high desert we also call Euphorbia "gopher plant" because it's purported to deter gophers. Whether or not it is truly a gopher repellent, it does look so pretty planted around the roots of other flowers, bushes and trees! And I have never known gophers to bother euphorbia or its neighbors, so maybe it's true. :)

    Other good reasons to plant at the base of larger plants is to shade their roots; the euphorbia acts as a living mulch that assists the taller plants in retaining soil moisture. AND it hides the ugly, dead, low-to-the-ground stems of bushes that are sometimes cut back hard, such as butterfly bush, Russian sage, some hibiscus and roses, etc.

    This euphorbia is so attractive, with slightly gracefully curving stems that remind me of slinkies trying to stand up! And the flowers are such an interesting color and shape, they always bring a smile to my heart.

    Best of all, it's truly, truly evergreen, doesn't even go a little bit dormant and dull. Yes, new growth will halt over the winter months, but the existing growth remains full and good-looking. We get a lot of foot traffic at our home (which is also a vacation rental for travelers), and these always-green stems help remind visitors where NOT to step.

    We are at 5000 feet, part of the Colorado plateau, very low humidity, 14 inches precipitation a year, wide temperature range from cold to hot, Zone 7. After a brief period of attention upon transplant, these hardy plants truly require NO care from us. Who doesn't want ZERO MAINTENANCE plants in their yard?!

        This was supposed to be a hardy hybrid for the Texas Panhandle. They all died within 4 weeks. Not sure if it was the heat or what.

        Q & A

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
