Excellent tough, dwarf, dense, bushy, evergreen plant, with very colourful bright green foliage margined with broad silver, which is tinged pink in winter. Bears many small green-white flowers from early to mid-summer. If conditions are correct global white fruits are formed and these open to reveal orange seeds in the autumn. Tolerant of dense shade but leaf colour will be brighter in a sunny position. Makes an excellent low hedge but can be used for ground cover if trimmed hard, or trained against a wall.

HEDGE Trim in May and August. For hedges 23 - 60cm (9ins - 2ft). Plant 30cm (1ft) apart.

SHRUB 60 x 120cm (2 x 4ft).

Pg = Pot Grown

Pot Grown Plants

These are normally sold in small 9cm wide pots, unless a different pot size is shown (where the pot size is shown in litres). Pot grown plants can be planted at any time of the year.


Pot Grown are generally available all year.

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.

Planting Distances for planting as a Hedge

We recommend planting Euonymus, Silver in a single row 30cm/1ft apart.

To calculate the number of plants needed for a length of hedging, click on Planting Distance Calculator above.

Planting Guide & RootGrow

We recommend planting with RootGrow. The recommended amount for RootGrow for an order will be shown in your shopping basket.

We will send out a planting guide with your order, you also can find a guide to planting here.


Hedging - As a general rule, plants grown for hedging need pruning to encourage side branching. Usually the harder a plant is pruned the bushier it will be. If they are not pruned there is a danger that the hedges will be thin and bare at the base and that the tips of the plants will die back. If the plant is naturally bushy, less or sometimes no pruning will be needed to achieve a dense hedge.

Euonymus, Silver: Prune any straggly or untidy shoots, otherwise no immediate pruning is required.
