  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Clusters of insignificant, green flowers appear in May and June among small, lustrous, green leaves with white margins that are pink-tinged in winter. This popular, bushy, variegated, evergreen shrub makes excellent groundcover and is a mainstay of low-maintenance gardens, but it also makes a good foil for more ornamental flowering shrubs. It is tough and will thrive in any well-drained border in sun or partial shade.

  • Garden care: Tip prune young plants in mid to late spring to encourage bushy growth and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Remove any plain green-leaved shoots as soon as they appear, cutting them back to the original branch.

    This Euonymous makes a great evergreen wall shrub where it can grow to max height of 15 feet by 8 feet wide(or less with pruning) - once established shorten back any over long stems to keep the plant snug to the wall or fence (any time between spring and autumn). Or grow as a hedge or part of a mixed hedge - trim 2 or 3 times a year to keep to desired height and spread. E. fortunei Emerald and gold can be used in the same way. One of my top ten evergreen shrubs , giving the garden colourful foliage even in winter.
