golden euonymous

21 Apr

gold euonymous 004Although flowers take center stage in Spring, many shrubs are putting on quite a show.  This golden euonymous will lose some of its bright yellow color as the season progresses;  it will fade to a yellow/green color but will continue to be a pretty backdrop for the flowers in the bed.  It keeps its leaves all winter, although the color fades a bit more.  golden euonymous 002Like most euonymous, it tends to spread.  You need to watch out for branches that are trailing on the ground because they will put down roots, causing the shrub to come up all over the garden.  Getting rid of those branches and an occasional trim is about all the care this shrub needs.

    I really like shrubs. They add color to the garden and the birds like to sit on them 🙂

    I love shrubs, too, and shrubs as well as small trees provide varying levels to make a flat garden more interesting. If you’re not blessed with an interestingly contoured space, you need to create the contours.
