Euonymus japonicus 'Microphyllus', commonly referred to as Japanese spindle or microphyllus boxleaf euonymus, is a compact and versatile evergreen shrub renowned for its dense, small-leaved foliage and robust growth habit. This variety is particularly noted for its diminutive leaf size, which adds a fine texture to garden compositions. The leaves are leathery, glossy, and deep green, typically measuring about 1-2 cm in length. They are tightly packed along the stems, creating a lush, bushy appearance that is ideal for formal gardens or as a foundation planting.

Originating from East Asia, Euonymus japonicus 'Microphyllus' is widely appreciated for its adaptability and ease of maintenance. It thrives in a range of soil types, although it prefers well-drained, fertile soil. This shrub is also tolerant of salt, making it a suitable choice for coastal areas. It performs best in full sun to partial shade and can withstand moderate drought conditions once established.

The plant’s growth habit is upright and dense, typically reaching heights of about 2-3 feet, with a similar spread. This controlled growth makes it an excellent candidate for topiary or hedging. It can be easily shaped into various forms and is often used in borders or as a low, formal hedge.

Euonymus japonicus 'Microphyllus' is relatively pest and disease resistant, though it can be susceptible to scale insects and fungal diseases if conditions are poor. Regular monitoring and preventive maintenance can help ensure the plant remains healthy and attractive.

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).
