Description

Rare and evergreen with colourful fruit, Euonymus myrianthus is native to Western China and was introduced to England in 1908 by the famous plant hunter Ernest Wilson. It has glossy, bright green leaves and dense, rounded heads of greenish-yellow flowers in spring.

These flowers are followed by splendid yellow fruit, which contrast beautifully with the bold foliage in autumn. The fruit split to reveal vivid orange-scarlet seed. An eye-catching and unusual evergreen garden plant!
