Mentha spicata and Euphorbia x martinii ‘Tiny Tim’

Spearmint and Cushion Spurge

I don’t care what anybody says I knew what I was in for when I planted spearmint. It’s hard to get started gardening in Stillwater so two years ago I planted mint. Sure I am editing it a bit as other things are doing well, but I love to have it around for cooking and the dog smells wonderful after an afternoon nap. The Euphorbia is another story, while I love this evergreen perennial  I am down to three after planting about seven two years ago. They are said to work in Zones 6b-8b, but I am not sure. To do well in Stillwater I think they need protection from cold winter wind.

The Euphorbia is another story, I love this evergreen perennial and I planted about 7 two years ago– I am down to three. They are said to work in Zones 6b-8b. To do well in Stillwater I think they need protection from cold winter wind. It’s the chartreuse cup-shaped flowers that provide the visual interest. I will post pictures later this summer.
