|Design Ideas||A useful broadleaf evergreen shrub for creating informal low hedges as partitions and for spatial definition within garden rooms. A dense light value foliage mass that may be played off darker green and bronze colored plants for unique contrast. This quality also adds light to semishaded dells. Fine branching adapts to casual topiary and informal shapes. Excellent year around coverage for foundation plantings that makes a striking effect against brick walls and wainscot.|
|Companion Plants||Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Potentilla (Potentilla); Holly (Ilex); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Coral Bells (Heuchera)|
|Care||Easy to grow in average, well-drained soils. Best with full sun in humid climates and afternoon shade in extremely hot climates. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in early spring. Prune regularly to maintain shape as a topiary.|
|Lore||The European Euonymus species was named spindlewood because its branches were fashioned into spindles for spinning wheels. E. japonicus is considered a poisonous plant in the Pacific.|
