Diamond euphorbia are versatile plants that thrive in both sun and part shade, and require less water than many other annual flowers. That comes in handy for hanging baskets since the soil tends to dry out quicker in these kinds of containers. You’ll want to make sure you choose companions that share similar preferences so all of the plants in your baskets will flourish.

  • Choose the supersized Diamond Mountain for extra-large hanging baskets and pair them with other vigorous flowers like Supertunia Vista® petunias.

  • Follow the recipes shown above to plant your 12” hanging basket of Diamond Euphorbia and its sun or shade loving companions.
  • Space the plants equally in a triangular pattern in the basket so it fills out on all sides.
  • Use a good quality potting soil in your hanging basket. 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 hanging basket immediately to help the soil settle in around the plants’ roots.
  • Hang it up in a sunny to partly shaded spot from a sturdy hook, pole or post.


You’ll be amazed how self-sufficient your Diamond euphorbia are in your hanging baskets. 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.
