Euonymus Jean Hugues Trough

Closely related to the Common Spindle Bush Euonymus Jean Hugues trough will form an evergreen low growing hedge. Euonymus Jean Hugues is a selected form of Euonymus japonicus and is naturally a more upright plant than some varieties this Euonymus will form a more narrow hedge than the alternatives.  It is a tough hardy plant that is suitable for growing in all parts of the United Kingdom and will also grow in most soils that are found in this country as well.

The leaves of the Euonymus Jean Hugues trough are a dark forest green held very close to the main stems.  They are ovel and have small serrations on them and point upright as well.  The new leaves come out a lovely fresh green before fading down to the dark forest green.  If left untrimmed it can form white flowers which has four petals and which is fragrant but if kept trimmed regularly as a neat hedge you are very unlikely to see them.  The Flowers can be followed by a small Pink berry but again this is not very obvious and regular trimming will reduce this occurring.

Euonymus Jean Hugues trough is happiest growing in full sun and this will give it its optimum colour, however it will also tolerate full or partial shade.

Euonymus Jean Hugues trough is relatively slow growing achieving 10-20cm growth per year.  If left untrimmed to form a more natural bush it will over time reach between 1.5 and 2.0 metres in height.  It is very easy to keep it clipped down to around a metre in height, but it can also be kept down at 50-60cntimetres in height with more regular trimming.  This ability to be kept at a lower height means that Euonymus Jean Hugues is a great alternative to Box (Buxus sempervirens) and English Yew (Taxus baccata) for use in parterres and knot gardens as well as low border edging.
