Emerald & Gold Euonymus


Euonymus is one of the most versatile evergreen shrubs. There are many varieties both green and variegated, all worth growing. ‘Emerald ‘n’Gold’ is one of the most common forms with bright-golden, variegated leaves. These turn an attractive pinkish-red in cold weather, making the plant ideal for winter colour.

It makes an excellent specimen shrub, a low, informal hedge or a climber on walls. Cut back growth by one-third in the first spring after planting to encourage a bushy habit, and remove any plain green reverted stems whenever seen.
