Go for gold with this evergreen hedging shrub that will bring year-round colour to your garden. Its variegated foliage has beautiful green and golden markings. It also produces small, green flowers during May, which are occasionally followed by pink fruit in autumn.
This shrub is incredibly versatile, growing well in borders, flowerbeds, patio containers and as hedging.
The Euonymus Japonicus Marieke will happily grow in a position with part sun and part shade, but you'll see the best variegation when grown in full sun. This plant is very easy to care for, and will only require the occasional pruning to keep it looking neat and tidy.

Jo's Top Tip
The Japonicus Marieke grows slightly taller than most other Euonymus, making it a good option if you're looking to grow a hedge, offering great privacy, too.
