Design IdeasUse this shrub in wild gardens and with natives that naturalize well and require little care. Plant where you can appreciate the pinkish fruit and allow this Euonymus to grow without shearing to exhibit its natural form. Integrates well with other shrubs and perennials from the woodland understory. Beautiful as an individual specimen or as a grove. Ideal for informal, natural-looking screen.
