Plant description

euonymus japonicus japanese spindle pierrolino 2

euonymus japonicus japanese spindle pierrolino 1

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.
