Buy Euonymus japonicus Paloma Blanca ('Lankveld03') (PBR) white candle euonymus: Superb white new foliage makes it a stunner.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow growing
  • Hardiness:frost hardy (may need protection in winter)

    The new foliage of this adaptable evergreen shrub emerges greenish white, but as it ages it gradually darkens to a deep, rich green. This gives the plant a distinctive bicoloured look, which lasts for a couple of months in spring. This plant will grow just about anywhere. It takes partial shade and dry soils in its stride (once established) and can be used for low hedging or pots. Although this plant is fully hardy the distinctive new flush of foliage could be damaged by a harsh frost.

  • 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.

  • Harmful if eaten

Very Striking


My garden is shady, windy and cold, it is difficult to grow many ordinary plants. This is a lovely variety of Euonymous- I have 2 others, but this is striking. I will gradually acclimatise it to a more windy and visible position.

I have a euonymus paloma blanca and it doesn't grow much. I have had it for about four years and it is only about three inches taller. It is planted so it gets morning sun and it is well watered. Everything else in the same flower bed is growing very well. What is the problem?

Hello, It's difficult to say from your description. These are not the fastest growing plants, however provided they are kept well fed and watered, and do not have too much competition from surrounding plants, then I would have expected a little more growth over 4 years.


if I want to make a low hedge of this plant what spacing should I use between them when planting


Hello, To create a nice dense effect, I would plant them at 30cm intervals.


Will this euonymus be suitable for planting as a small hedge after blighted box has been there please?


Hello there Yes you can plant this euonymus where the buxus was previously. It is not meant to be susceptible to box blight, but I would still clear away any fallen buxus leaves as the spores could still be there. Hope this helps.
