ever green

I am thinking of planting an Euonymus Japonicus Jane Hugues in my border as a single columnar shrub. If left to grow without clipping, what height will it normally reach?. I live in the northwest and my soil is ph7.

    Do you mean Euonymus Japonicus Jean Hugues? If so, they are compact upright shrubs that stay very tight. They can grow to around 2 meters in height eventually, but quite slow growing to reach that height.

    I have just checked the shrub height again and noticed these shrubs are not like the the usual Japonicus range. Looks like they can only reach around 1-1.2 meters in height.

    If you are looking for something similar looking but want something a bit taller, take a look at Euonymus Japonicus Green Spire. This shrub can reach up to 2 meters. Suitable for all soil types provided planting hole is well prepared.
  • Thank you Borderline. I do want a taller shrub. I will look at Green Spire.
