Euonymus shrub provides green and yellow color all year long. The leaves are glossy and showy. It requires very little maintenance; just prune with quality pruning shears such as Fiskars 25-33 Inch Power-Lever Extendable Hedge Shear (9169), to maintain shape. Fertilize with organic fertilizer Espoma PT18 Plant Tone, 18-Pound in early Spring. Unfortunately, deer also like euonymus, so keep an eye on the plant, and if you notice disappearing leaves and branches, spray with an excellent deer repellent we recommend below.
For beginner gardeners, Euonymus shrub is easy maintenance and consistent year-round. It is the centerpiece of our “Front Sidewalk Garden.” For more pics and videos of our easy maintenance “Front Sidewalk Garden,” click here.
