  Euonymus Japonica hedge
Euonymus Japonica

Euonymus Japonica

Euonymus Japonica is a broadleaf evergreen, usually planted as a hedge or border plant. There are solid green and variegated cultivars that range in height from one foot to ten feet high.

Flowers are inconspicuous, as seen in photo.

Plants do best in full sun but can tolerate most light conditions. Moderate water requirements.

Great choice for hedges, formal gardens and for forming topiaries, as the plant stands up to heavy pruning very well.

One of the main issues with Japonica is their tendency to get powdery mildew. This can be kept to a minimum by not allowing the leaves to remain wet overnight.

Water Euonymus Japonica in early morning to give the leaves time to dry off. If this is not possible or if the fungus is already present, regular spraying with a fungicide will keep it under control.
