The spindle variety known as euonymus 'Vegetus' is a very compact evergreen shrub with a bushy habit. It can grow up to 1m tall and is generally not a quick grower. The non-variegated ‘Vegetus’ reaches full height slightly more quickly than its variegated relatives. Insusceptible to diseases, it makes a good alternative to box which can suffer from box blight. It will flower in early to mid summer, bearing white flowers against medium to dark green foliage. Please note that this plant is poisonous to both animals and humans. Euonymus ‘Vegetus’ will tolerate anything from full shade to full sun, but does not appreciate waterlogging. All in all, it will make a low maintenance hedge.
