Better Than a Boxwood!
Manhattan Euonymus is a lush, green, fast growing Euonymus that might remind you of a Boxwood but on steroids. Growing twice as fast as a boxwood, use this as a robust growing hedge. Manhattan can be sheared more formally and kept at most any size if you like. They make excellent formal hedges that can be used to enclose a rose garden or form the outer walls of a garden room.
Rounded, shiny green leaves stay on the plant year-round as it is a broadleaved evergreen even up into hardiness zone 5. They can be grown in full sun through full shade which opens the door to many uses in the landscape. There are not many plants that can be grown successfully in either sun or shade.
Left untrimmed, they get six feet in height and about six feet across very quickly. They grow branches all the way to the ground, so won't get "leggy" at the bottom. Your Manhattan Euonymus is an excellent candidate for an informal hedge making a great backdrop for a perennial border in sun or shade. A Manhattan hedge will also make a great natural backdrop for a colorful shrub border as well. They also make incredible specimen plants that can be sheared into a pyramid or even trained along a wall.
In zone 5, you should be careful to keep the plants sited out of western and northern exposed winter winds. Manhattan is shallow rooted and will love additional moisture in hotter regions during the growing season to keep it happy.
Overall, Manhattan Euonymus is a very versatile and useful plant in so many different aspects in the landscape. It will make a striking addition to your landscape, especially in the winter. Order yours today!
