BEST OF THE BUNCH Euonymus [...].

BEST OF THE BUNCH Euonymus EUONYMUS will often brighten up a spot in winter where nothing else will grow.

Evergreen types, particularly variegated varieties, are probably the best of all ground covers in winter borders and under trees. They will grow in virtually any soil in both sun and partial shade, are easy to keep in check and can look pretty impressive against a shady wall. There are some which can be used as climbers, clinging to the wall like ivy, such as the white-edged Silver Queen.

But for a true splash of autumn colour go for the deciduous spindle bush, Euonymus alatus.
