Growing Euonymus japonicus Paloma Blanca

Any well drained soil in sun or partial shade. Drought tolerant when established. Good for exposed coastal locations.

It is hardy and evergreen pretty much throughout Britain, but in a harsher than average Scottish winter it might drop its leaves.

As with any variegated plant, prune out pure green-leaved stems if and when they appear.

Spacing an evergreen Spindle hedge: 3 plants per metre, 33 centimetres apart, is ideal.

Did You Know?

The species is native to Japan and the Eastern coast of Asia. This cultivar was bred by Van Lankveld nursery in Elsendorp, Holland, registration code Lankveld03. 

Paloma blanca means "white dove" in Spanish, but for reasons best known to a marketing department somewhere, it is often labelled "white candle" in the UK.
