What is this?

It was given to me about 2 years ago and has been in a pot since.

I thought is was a cotoneaster, but now I'm not so sure, as it has never flowered, despite being in a sunny and sheltered west facing spot.

It has been growing sideways very well, though it seems a slow grower.

It is about 30cm high (without pot).

Thanks  :)

    Euonymus fortunei ... possibly 'Emerald Gaiety' ... often used as ground cover.

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Euonymous fortunei, probably 'Silver Queen'.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    It can be grown against a wall and will climb, though it leans, doesn't cling.
    I had one hiding my oil tank until the trellis supporting it finally collapsed - now got to get new posts into very compacted limestone chippings!
    I knew one that piggybacked on some ivy and got as high as the first floor windows!

    Wow! I thought it only reached 1m!
