English name: spindle
An exceptionally strong and attractive ground cover plant that grows easily and tolerates trimming very well.
The Euonymus plant mat prefers a sandy or loamy soil with sufficient humus. Euonymus does not thrive well on clay soil because, in this soil type, the roots of the plant mats are not sufficiently aerated. However, the plant mat does well at moist positions. Euonymus tolerates salt relatively well.
