Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost' - This perennial flower/grtoundcover looks somewhat like a miniature snowflake (Euphorbia leucocephala) but flowers continuously. 'Diamond Frost' is the best known but there are other cultivars of a similar style coming into the marketplace.
This genus encompasses a range of fleshy-leaved plants which are not spiky or spiny. Forms range from low growing to tall with leaves variously coloured and smooth or felt-like.

Other Online Information
Additional links about other species or about succulents in general are provided below. They are intended for general information, design ideas and research. Some plants referred to in links may be unavailable in Australia or even illegal to grow. Many heat and drought tolerant plants have considerable potential to become weeds (remember the prickly pear cactus!), so take care. If in doubt, consult appropriate authorities in your region.

ALERT: Cactus growers and traders under threat
All Australians, especially anyone who grows or handles plants, should be aware of proposals from the federal government to expand the list of species to be banned or regulated due to alleged drug dangers. A variety of Australian natives and common garden exotics could potentially be banned, in addition to many cactus species. The website gardenfreedom.com provides more information on this issue, including how you can have your say.
