Euonymus japonicus Microphyllus

£7.50

Available in a 3 litre pot.

Euonymus japonicus Microphyllus is an evergreen, densely bushy, rounded shrub with dark green leaves. A great alternative to Buxus (prone to box blight and other pests and diseases), it can provide a great low screen or box hedge when plants are positioned next to each other.

Low maintenance, with a compact growth habit, this variety will reach only a maximum of 1m/3.3ft tall and wide eventually, spreading right to ground level.

It is well suited to trimming to a desirable shape, making maintenance very easy indeed. Variegated gold leaf highlights and small greenish-white flowers in early summer offer added interest.

Hardier than some Euonymus varieties it is an excellent option for hedging, or in and around borders.

A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Euonymus japonicus Microphyllus hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).

Product Description

It grows well in shady areas (or in sun), in a fertile well drained soil, but is also tolerant of a coastal position where salt spray and poorer soils are common. It should be watered regularly particularly whilst establishing, and in warmer temperatures — it prefers moist conditions but definitely not waterlogged/swamp-like. It’s close relative, Euonymus japonicus can also be found on our ‘coastal bench’.
