Bold dark green and bright yellow evergreen foliage. Bright yellow stems. Tidy, mounded habit. Low maintenance.
Small shrub that is good in the landscape but is small enough to thrive in pots or combination planters. An excellent low maintenance plant for mass plantings or along sidewalks.
Tolerant of most soils except extremely wet conditions. pH adaptable. Withstands heavy pruning. Pruning can be done any time, but is best done in late fall. The occasional green branch can be pruned away at any time. Prefers medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.
Several years ago, Dutch nurseryman Gus Bolwijn made a remarkable find. In a batch of Euonymus 'Sunspot' liners, he noticed one branch with exceedingly attractive leaves. Unlike 'Sunspot', with its small yellow spot, this branch displayed a big splash of pleasing yellow and a thin dark green margin.
After years of testing, it proved to be a beautiful, neat growing shrub with superb hardiness and sunburn resistance. Blondy is a colorful evergreen that looks great all year long. It stays nicely mounded and doesn't sprawl like other euonymus.
