Euonymus japonicus 'Kathy' Hedge Plants Description
Euonymus japonicus Kathy is very popular for all sorts of positions because they provide year round interest and are well suited to all positions (including cold, windy, coastal, exposed) and virtually all soils (all but the wettest). They provide the best variegation when grown in full sun but will also tolerate partial shade. The leaves are broad and oval with dark green centres, fading to light green and then with creamy white margins and white leaf tips, and young leaves generally start with a yellow blotch which fades to cream. Another great Euonymus variety with creamy white margins, is Euonymus Emerald Gaiety.
They will grow to 2m but are very tolerant of clipping so can just as easily be kept at a more moderate height. All parts of the plants are harmful if eaten.
See our ultimate Euonymus hedging guide for more information.
These plants are available all year round.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.
Euonymus Kathy hedge trimming should be done twice a year, once in May and again in late September. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots.
To keep the hedge bushy, tip trim the leading and main lateral shoots in May and then tidy up again in September.
