Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus is a slow growing plant, similar to Buxus (or Boxwood) which makes a great low growing hedge or border plant. Native to Japan, Korea, and China, Euonymus Japonicus Microphyllus has evergreen foliage for reliable year-round display. It’s small, deep green glossy leaves are the main attraction, and the dense growth habit creates an effective low screen when grown as a hedge. Plant in full sun or partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil. This low-maintenance foliage shrub will do well in either a sheltered or exposed position, and is well-suited to coastal locations as it’s also tolerant to salt and wind.
