Native to Japan, Korea, and China, Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus has evergreen foliage for reliable year-round display.

Hardy in most parts of the UK, Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus will reach a full height and spread of 20 cm metres in a period of 5 years, later reaching its full size of 30-60 cm. If planting as a hedge, space 15-20 cm apart. Prune out dead or damaged stems in early spring. Euonymus Japonicus Microphylluswill also come back from a severe pruning to the ground if renovation is necessary. Plant Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus in full sun or partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil. They will do well in either a sheltered or exposed position, and are well-suited to planting in a coastal location as they are tolerant to salt and wind. Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus is an extremely versatile plant which can be used in a variety of different ways in your garden plans. This small, slow-growing shrub is a natural choice for container growing, where its reliable year-round foliage will make it a star, whether on a rooftop terrace, balcony, or in a courtyard garden or on a patio. Place one Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus on its own, or several, each in its own pot, perhaps at different heights, to create a beautiful year-round picture. They are also a great choice to plant near a formal fountain or pond. While they are too low for a privacy screen, even at full size, Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus makes an excellent low hedge to mark off different portions of your garden, especially where you do not want the view obscured. Its dense growth and evergreen foliage can line a pathway or edge a patio. A plant or two halfway back in a mixed border will make a pleasant background for flowering plants during the growing season, and then take centre stage when winter comes.
