Gloria Rose recipe with diamond frost®

Diamond Frost® is the diamond necklace that dresses up your little black dress. Use it sparingly if you’re just looking to add a bit of sparkle, or plant it liberally if you want to make sure it gets noticed. Since this plant grows at a rate similar to many other flowers like Superbells® calibrachoa, Superbena® verbena and Boldly® geraniums, it’s easy to mix Diamond Frost into your upright container recipes.

The clue to Diamond Mountain’s size is in its name. It forms a huge mountain of tiny, radiant white flowers, kicking into high gear once the heat of summer arrives. Because of its massive size, you’ll want to plant Diamond Mountain with other very vigorous plants in upright containers like Supertunia Vista® petunias and Angelface® Angelonia.

Choose Diamond Snow™ if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t like your peas and carrots to mix on your dinner plate. This plant is not the mingling kind. Its size and average growth rate make it perfect for upright containers where it will happily occupy its own space next to its neighbors. Its double flowers provide an extra-bright punch of white.

  • Most people pair Diamond euphorbia with other flowering or foliage plants in upright containers. It can be grown alone, but its airy shape is enhanced by having companions.
  • For one 12” container, you’ll need one 4-inch potted Diamond Frost or Diamond Snow and two other plants with an average growth rate. The more vigorous Diamond Mountain should be planted in containers that are at least 14-16” in diameter; the larger the pot the better.
  • Space the plants equally in the container so it fills out on all sides.
  • Use a good quality potting soil in your container. Better potting soils are light in texture and weight, and water drains easily through them.
  • Mix a bit of slow release plant food into the potting soil before you add the plants. Follow the package instructions to know how much to use. This will ensure a small amount of food is available to the plants’ roots over the season.
  • Water your newly planted container immediately to help the soil settle in around the plants’ roots.


You’ll be amazed how self-sufficient your Diamond euphorbia are in your upright containers. A little sunshine, an occasional drink, and a light dose of plant food are all they need to sparkle all season.


  • Diamond euphorbia may appear delicate, but they have a rock-solid constitution. ​They won’t wilt in all-day sun and heat but are versatile enough to bloom with just a few hours of cool sunlight each day.
  • Though their flower power will be strongest in more sun, if a few puffs of white is all you’re looking to add to your shade containers, Diamond Frost will do the trick.


  • Plants growing in hanging baskets tend to dry out much faster than those planted in heavier upright containers and in the ground. This is especially true when they are hanging in windy areas or in full sun all day.
  • Diamond euphorbia prefers for its soil to dry a bit between each time you water.
  • To figure out if it is time to water, stick your finger down in the soil up to your first knuckle. If the soil sticks to your finger, it is moist enough to make it through the day without watering. If not, it’s time to water.
  • If you don’t have much time to water or if you tend to travel in the summertime, consider investing in a WaterWise® self-watering kit. It saves time and water, is simple to use, and waters up to ten containers at once from a single faucet.


  • Diamond euphorbia needs less plant food than hungry annuals like petunias, so it is ideal to pair them with plants like begonias, browallia, bidens and impatiens.
  • At time of planting, add some Proven Winners continuous release plant food to the potting mix. Follow package directions for rates.
  • About once per month, feed them with Proven Winners water soluble plant food to provide a quick burst of nutrients to the plants.
  • If your plants start to get leggy partway through summer, decrease the rate of feeding.
  • Any brand of plant food meant for flowers will work for your hanging baskets. But we recommend Proven Winners water soluble and continuous release plant foods because they are specially formulated with micronutrients to help our varieties grow bigger, stronger, and bear more flowers.


  • Diamond euphorbia rarely, if ever, needs to be trimmed. This is one plant that won’t require any pruning or deadheading all season to keep its good looks and shape.
  • If you do want to trim these plants, keep in mind that euphorbias have a sticky white sap running through their stems that will seep out when you cut them. This sap can be a mild skin irritant, so it’s a good idea to wear gloves when you trim them.
