Proven Winners

Brighter, bolder year-round color!

Several years ago, Dutch nurseryman Gus Bolwijn made a remarkable find. In a batch of Euonymus 'Sunspot' liners, he noticed one branch with exceedingly attractive leaves. Unlike 'Sunspot', with its small yellow spot, this branch displayed a big splash of pleasing yellow and a thin dark green margin.

After years of testing, it proved to be a beautiful, neat growing shrub with superb hardiness and sunburn resistance. Blondy is a colorful evergreen that looks great all year long. It stays nicely mounded and doesn't sprawl like other euonymus.
