Plant Facts & Specifications

--Mature Height : 4 - 7 ft

--Mature Width : 4 - 6 ft

--Growth Rate :
Moderate to Fast

--Hardiness Zones :
5 - 9

--Sun Exposure :
Full to partial sun

--Soil Preference :
Average - well drained

--Foliage Color & Texture : Evergreen broadleaf - medium to large sized rounded leaves with a heavier texture, and a thick pliable stem. Color is a beautiful emerald green color, and very similar to Green Boxleaf Euonymus, but larger in size. Color is best in full sun, and lasts consistently all year long!

--Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts : Flower - very, very small inconspicuous blooms usually appear in mid spring.......but definitely nothing to write home about. This plant is kept for the color & foliage traits, and NOT for any type of flower or bloom. Flowers are a pale yellowish white color, and fragrant.

--Diseases / Insects : The single biggest danger to Japanese Grandifolius Euonymus, and most any Euonymus variety, is by far Euonymus Scale. Regular inspection of plants is highly recommended.....as scale is usually easily treated if caught in early stages. Other diseases that have been seen, but not nearly as common, include: Anthracnose, crown gall, leaf spots, powdery mildews, aphids, and thrips.

--Recommended Spacing : Spacing would vary greatly depending upon the use / purpose intended. But for use as a hedge type planting, a spacing of about 2 1/2 - 3 feet apart will work very well.

--Deer Resistance Rating : Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance

--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.
