Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald 'n'Gold'
Spindle - 2 litres
Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald 'n' Gold' is a deservedly popular and useful low spreading evergreen. Neat green leaves margined irregularly in bright gold assume an attractive reddish hue in winter, and fresh new growth is especially attractive in spring. Good for ground cover under trees, as a small specimen shrub in a border, in a container, and even makes a neat low hedge. Also an excellent self-clinging climber if planted against a wall. Height and spread 45cm-1m by 1-1.5m.
Thrives in well-drained soil in full sun or light shade. Trim any time from April to September.
This plant has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
