Euonymus japonicus 'Jean Hugues' is a low growing dense shrub and its compact habit makes it ideal for borders, hedging and parterres. Euonymus japonicus 'Jean Hugues' is particularly hardy and the evergreen foliage retains its deep green colour throughout winter. This Euonymus variety is a great alternative to Buxus Sempervirens as it does not run the risk of contracting box blight.

  • Best Features: evergreen, hardy, low hedging or ground cover, fragrant flowers
  • Ideal For Hedges: up to 1m
  • Growth Rate: Slow 10 - 20cm per year
  • Position: Sunny, partial shade, moist-normal soil, sheltered or exposed, inland or coastal
  • Also Consider: If 'Jean Hugues' or Box are not suitable for your needs, also see Ilex crenata (Japanese Holly), another compact shrub suitable for garden borders.
