    Brighter, bolder year-round color!

    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.

    • Blondy is such a great variegated colour! and has a nice compact growth habit compared to my other euonymus. Perfect for smaller spots where you don't want much spreading. :)

    • I planted this plant last fall in a north flowerbed, decided this fall to move it to a west flowerbed. The roots were deep, so I changed my mind and just moved my hosta instead, and ended up moving it just a little bit in the same bed. It came through with flying colors. This plant is great, it withstood the shock of almost be replanted. Love it
