    Maintenance Notes: 

    Diamond Delight might look delicate and frilly, but nothing could be further from the truth. Diamond Delight is actually pretty much tough as nails. She has performed well from North to South and coast to coast. While she does best in sun or part sun conditions, she does surprisingly well in shady conditions also. As you might suspect she is great in mixed containers and containers by herself, but don't discount her excellent performance when planted in the landscape. She needs little to no supplemental water and is extremely heat tolerant. She doesn't need to be deadheaded and shouldn't need much in the way of fertilizer either - she's a very self-sufficient gal. While you shouldn't need to trim her back, you can trim her back at anytime and she will just keep doing her thing. Diamond Frost is one of my all-time favorite plants.

    Diamond Frost is moderately salt tolerant - it can withstand the amount of salt encountered when planted 30 feet or more from the source of the salt.

    Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary.

    Some shedding of flowers and leaves may occur indoors depending on light levels and watering.

    Plants in the spurge family often will bleed a milky, white sap if cut or wounded. This sap is a form of latex. Most people will have little or no reaction due to sap exposure from the euphorbia that Proven Winners sells. However, people with sensitive skin or latex allergies should be cautious when handling euphorbia. Poinsettias are in this same family. If you have ever experienced a skin irritation due to contact with poinsettias you should be cautious with all euphorbia.

    An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

    With a habit similar to sweet alyssum, Diamond Delight is characterized by its tightly compact habit and double flowers. It makes an excellent underplanting for taller plants like Artful Caladiums and forms a perfect ball in hanging baskets. It is the most vigorous double-flowered Euphorbia available, but tops out about 25% shorter than Diamond Frost.

    • I planted 2 of these in a patio container that is about 2 1/2 feet tall. I put them on opposite sides of the container and filled in the center with other plants and a few more around the outside. This would be about early May. By August of last year, they had spread right around the container so that it looked like a beautiful pouf of white little flowers. When I planted them they were only a few inches tall and a few little stems. What a surprise. Now I have to find a tall striking plant for the middle that will not be overpowered by the Lobularia.

    • Picked one of these up in May when it was all of 3 inches tall. Now it has grown to about 12 inches in height and has spread rather nicely. More durable plant than I thought as it has endured long periods w/o water. Bounces back well on the rare occasion it looked bedraggled so I would buy one next season and recommend.

    • Love this plant, but I have never seen one anywhere that is full as the photos. It is very delicate and comes 1 per pot, top heavy, and hairline width to the stalk. Considering how delicate it is and how easy it breaks, it would be nice to have more than 1 to a pot to provide some sturdiness to the tiny stalk. It would also be nice to know why the plants have such scares outgrowth, when the photos from the nursery look so bushy. A tad expensive for the lack of growth and sturdiness.
