Where to plant Euonymus?

With such a wide range of Euonymus available it is a case of matching the plant to the situation. Smaller plants are best in pots or in front of the border, perhaps in small groups. Euonymus can be grown in full sun or partial shade. Shade will suit pale coloured foliage forms best as they may be scorched in summer sun. Euonymus japonica forms may be used in coastal planting as they are salt tolerant.

How to care for this Euonymus?

Euonymus are easy to grow once established. Water young plants in dry spells. Light pruning in spring and summer will help keep individual plants and hedges in good shape. Larger plants may benefit from harder pruning to reduce size.
