Euonymus japonicus 'Microphyllus' - aka Boxleaf Euonymus

A very versatile shrub with super dark green, glossy leaves that remain all through winter. Truly a wonderful evergreen shrub that holds its color amazingly well all year!! Foliage is extremely thick & dense, and takes very well to trimming and shaping - the possibilities are virtually endless!! Not as susceptible to scale disease, as many euonymus can be - is an excellent, hardier alternative to boxwoods for use in hedge rows, and borders. Can be trimmed or pruned to maintain whatever shape & height desired. Withstands a wide range of harsh conditions, but needs fairly well drained soil. Will not do well in wet, swampy conditions - but that is about the only condition that seems to bother this wonderful, all purpose shrub.


Height:
4 - 6 ft
Spread: 3 - 6 ft
Growth Rate: Moderate
Hardiness Zones: 5 - 9
Sun Exposure: Full sun to heavy shade
Soil Preference: Can adapt to most any soil type - avoid wet, swampy conditions





--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
