Bulletproof landscape plants. Not all plants are equal. Many require the soil and climate (amongst other things) to be 'just right'. The plants described in this article are the ones that deserve the title of 'bulletproof' and are a good starting point for an easy-care garden.
Euonymus 'Pierrolino' is a small and compact growing shrub with attractively variegated foliage. The leaves are leathery and glossy dark green splashed with white, the new growth being more white and aging to green. It grows to a metre high and wide, making it suitable for low hedging and for borders, also great for containers and for topiary work. Grows in sun to partial shade, and in most soil types. The flowers are insignifiant. Very easy care, responds well to pruning to shape. Frost tolerant.
All parts of the plant will cause discomfort if eaten, and may cause skin irritation on contact.
