This simple plant duo for full sun looks fantastic just about year-round, is drought-tolerant, and super easy-care. Euphorbia rigida with its succulent ice-blue foliage is handsome any time of year, but is particularly eye-catching in spring when tipped with acid yellow blooms that take on red tones as they age. Soft and flowing wisps of pheasant tail grass introduce pleasing textural variety and movement and its warm tawny tones are a pleasing color companion to the blue euphorbia.
