We believe that no formal garden could be complete without the addition of at least one of these charming evergreens. Box Leaf Euonymus is a small, well-behaved shrub that is most often seen massed and sheared into low hedges, borders, topiaries, or knot gardens.
This plant’s smaller stature and slower growth rate also make it extremely useful for container gardening, and its natural form is quite attractive when left unpruned, so it fits into any style of garden where a low-growing screen is desired. The absence of showy flowers helps Box Leaf Euonymus keep a tidy appearance year-round, and the tiny, deep-green leaves make up for lack of blossoms by providing plenty of up-close structural interest.
