Euphorbia x martinii 'Ascot Rainbow' (Euphorbia characias x Euphorbia amygdaloides 'Rubra') was discovered by David Glenn in Australia.

I have found that even the hybrid euphorbias are good at keeping gophers and other plant/bulb-eating critters out of the garden beds. The euphorbia does need to be planted close to the plants/bulbs you want to protect.

Thank you Evan. I will check to see if I already had entered that as a Tip. I can't remember. : )
It really does work. I couldn't grow lilies because of gophers, I can now.

I did a search, and that tip had already been published. http://garden.org/ideas/view/valleylynn/623/A-quick-tip/
In that photo I was just using the wild euphorbia.
