|Botanical Pronunciation||yoo-ON-ih-mus juh-PON-ih-kus mi-kro-FIL-a|
|Lore||Euonymous earned the common name "spindle tree" for its unique stems and branching patterns which combined with flexibility became vital for spindle making in European cottage textile industries.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; reaches only 2 ft. tall and wide.|
|Bloom Time||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||An excellent golden hedge plant for edging high profile planting areas. Use along the lawn in foundation planters to create definition either sheared or left natural. Perfectly sized to flesh out barren areas in front of old shrubs with bare legs. Add to shrub borders for year around golden balls of light that add color to all green compositions. Use in small groups in naturalistic plantings or in the Japanese style to nestle rocks and boulders or around the trunks of larger trees. Habit works well in modern landscapes for reoccurring elements in a sparse ground plain. Plant in beautiful pots in pairs to flank steps and entries, or use more to encircle the base of garden art or fountain.|
