Euonymus japonica 'Aureo Variegata' is a hardy evergreen shrub with glossy, leathery green edged yellow variegated leaves. The leaves have a scalloped edge. The flowers are small and inconspicuous. It is a reliable, tough and fast grower which can be used as a hedge or topiary plant, screen plant or as an accent shrub. It does well in large containers if fed and watered regularly.
Euonymus can handle a wide range of growing conditions, but do best on a fertile, moist, well drained soil.
