Euonymus japonicus 'Jean Hugues' Hedge Plants Description
Euonymus japonicus 'Jean Hugues' is a dense, compact shrub with lovely evergreen foliage. It is well suited to garden borders and hedging and is tipped to be the new favourite alternative for Box hedging. Where Buxus may be susceptible to box blight, Euonymus Jean Hugues is not; although we have never had a customer complain of box blight after ordering from us! It is perfect for parterres and formal hedging as the foliage retains its dark green colour throughout Winter.
