Spindle

A chic-looking yet adaptable small shrub that's perfect for city gardens.

Looking for all the world as if it has been artistically splashed with chalky-white paint, this delightful little shrub is sure to excite comment and admiration from garden visitors. While you might think something so elegant would be tender, it's actually a tough plant, ideally suited to city life, coping well with pollution, overshadowed gardens and dry soil. The fantastic thing about this Euonymus is that is also grows well in a pot, so it can be positioned for maximum impact where its evergreen foliage will provide year round interest.

A super small shrub that's big on looks but doesn't need much looking after.

Plant Care & Advice

Generally unfussy, this plant will grow well almost anywhere as long as the soil isn't waterlogged. Perfect for north walls and cold gardens. In common with other Euonymus, it grows well near the coast, although in extremely hot and sunny situations the delicate white shoot tips may be scorched.

Drought tolerant once established - water plants well in their first growing season, then they can normally be left to get on with it. A lovely low-maintenance plant - virtually no routine care needed at all!

If after a few years they start to look a little tired or misshapen, simply prune back in spring and apply a general-purpose fertiliser. Pruning can be either a light trim to remove wayward branches or a good old hack to encourage fresh growth from the base and a complete rejuvenation.
