The Plants

Euonymus fortunei 'Silver Queen'


Photo of Euonymus fortunei 'Silver Queen'


A useful and tough plant with attractive dark green leaves whose white margins take on pink tones. Clusters of insignificant, green flowers appear in May and June. This bushy, evergreen shrub makes excellent groundcover and will also climb vigorously against a shady wall or through a tree if supported.
