Ascot Rainbow' Euphorbia. There is conflicting info on hardiness zone. I purchased one and now wondering if I should grow it in a pot and move it to a protected area in the winter.

I've never seen a more reliable resource for hardiness than DG, which says Z7 for that plant. A spot with good drainage adjacent to hardscaping (brick/rock wall or patio) would probably help you succeed. Stick a few cuttings in likely spots & see what happens?

Beautiful plant, BTW! I'd love to find it too.
The golden rule: Do to others only that which you would have done to you.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now. (-Unknown)

Thank you all. I guess in a pot it will go.

I also picked up BonFire. That one lasted 3 yrs. It barely hung on until it did not reappear. I will plant it in a protected area this time.
