Euonymus japonicus 'Gold Queen' is an attractive shrub renowned for its vibrant foliage and compact growth habit. With its stunning golden-yellow leaves, this cultivar brings a touch of brightness and elegance to any garden or landscape setting.

The 'Gold Queen' shrub belongs to the Euonymus genus, which is native to East Asia. It typically reaches a height of 3 to 4 feet (90 to 120 centimeters) with a similar spread, making it an ideal choice for smaller gardens or as a low hedge. The shrub has a dense and bushy nature, creating a lush and full appearance.

The most distinctive feature of Euonymus japonicus 'Gold Queen' is its striking foliage. The leaves are oval-shaped and glossy, with a radiant golden-yellow color that remains vibrant throughout the year. The golden hue intensifies during the spring and summer months, providing a brilliant contrast against other greenery in the landscape. In autumn, the leaves may take on a reddish tint, further adding to its visual appeal.

In addition to its stunning foliage, 'Gold Queen' produces inconspicuous greenish flowers in late spring, followed by small ornamental fruit capsules that open to reveal bright orange seeds. While the flowers are not the main highlight of this shrub, they add a subtle touch of interest.

Euonymus japonicus 'Gold Queen' thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-drained soil. It is a relatively low-maintenance plant that is tolerant of various soil types and can withstand occasional dry periods once established. Regular pruning can help maintain its compact shape and promote dense growth.

This cultivar serves as a fantastic focal point in mixed borders, rock gardens, or as a striking accent plant. Its vibrant golden foliage adds a touch of warmth and elegance to the landscape, making Euonymus japonicus 'Gold Queen' a popular choice among gardeners looking for a versatile and visually appealing shrub.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
