Attractive evergreen from the Far East related to our native spindle. This particular euonymus has deep green leaves widely edged in cream. An attractive and unusual hedge that is especially welcome in the winter.


Euonymus japonica ‘Bravo’ is a cultivar of the Japanese euonymus, valued for its evergreen foliage and dense growth habit, making it a popular choice for hedges. Here are some key features and considerations for using Euonymus japonica ‘Bravo’ for hedging:

  1. Foliage:
    • ‘Bravo’ is known for its glossy, dark green leaves, which provide a lush and vibrant backdrop throughout the year. The evergreen nature of the foliage ensures that the hedge remains visually appealing, even in winter.
  2. Size and Growth:
    • This cultivar typically forms a dense and compact hedge, reaching a height of 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters) and a similar spread. Its moderate size makes it suitable for various landscape applications, including hedging along property borders or creating dividers within the garden.
  3. Versatility:
    • Euonymus japonica ‘Bravo’ is versatile and adapts well to different soil types and light conditions. It can thrive in full sun to partial shade, providing flexibility in choosing a suitable location for your hedge. Its adaptability makes it a reliable choice for a range of garden settings.
  4. Leaf Variegation:
    • Some varieties of Euonymus japonica, including ‘Bravo,’ exhibit variegation in the form of white edges or markings on the leaves. This adds visual interest to the hedge, making it an attractive feature in the landscape.
  5. Low Maintenance:
    • Euonymus japonica ‘Bravo’ is relatively low-maintenance, requiring minimal pruning to maintain its shape and density. Regular pruning can be done in late winter or early spring to encourage branching and remove any dead or unwanted growth.
  6. Soil and Watering:
    • This cultivar is adaptable to a variety of soil types but prefers well-draining soil. Once established, it can tolerate periods of drought, although regular watering during dry spells will contribute to healthier growth.
  7. Seasonal Interest:
    • While ‘Bravo’ is primarily appreciated for its evergreen foliage, it may produce inconspicuous flowers in late spring to early summer. These are followed by small, ornamental fruits. While the flowers and fruits are not as showy as some other plants, they add a subtle seasonal interest to the hedge.
