|Lore||In Europe, Euonymous shrubs were known as spindle trees because their branches were cut and used for spindle cores in early textile manufacturing.|
|Average Size at Maturity||A very prostrate groundcover 8 to 10 in. tall, 18 to 24 in. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||Low growing shade loving groundcovers are perfectly adapted to conditions under tree canopies. Use to create a carpet beneath a grove of birch or a mixed composition of needled evergreens and broadleaf deciduous trees. Excellent choice for sun starved north side gardens or where overhead structures limit exposure. A real problem solver beneath large older shrubs with "bare legs". A good erosion control choice for shaded cut slopes and banks.|
