Green Spire Euonymus

Euonymus japonicus 'Green Spire'

Green Spire Euonymus is a well-behaved plant with a narrow growth habit that makes it ideal for small spaces, so if you need the height, but can’t sacrifice too much space, plant this evergreen shrub! Euonymus japonicus 'Green Spire' grows quickly with dark, glossy green leaves – we love to plant them in landscapes as dense, narrow privacy hedges or screens that are ideal for blocking out unwanted views or to separate buildings.

‘Green Spire’ can adapt to a wide variety of soil types and is a good plant for dry areas. It withstands salt spray, so it’s also a good candidate for seaside planting throughout Southern California. Since it’s able to tolerate urban pollution, it’s a good choice for city environments just as it is for suburban landscapes! It thrives in full sun to heavy shade exposures, so feel free to plant this evergreen almost anywhere! This is a great plant that looks attractive sheared or allowing it to grow and assume its natural character. In fact, it’s so versatile, it will bring interest wherever you plant it!

Green Spire Euonymus is easy to care for. Once established, it will have low to moderate watering needs and makes an excellent clipped hedge - homeowners and landscapers alike love that with minimal care, it can create a formal appearance on any landscape! This is a stunning evergreen whether used for topiary or as a hedge/screen! For optimal performance, we recommend feeding with our Super Charged Moon Juice fertilizer.
