A rare and very attractive evergreen shrub, native to Western China and introduced into the United Kingdom in 1908 by Ernest Wilson.
A dense mass of glossy, bright green leaves provide the perfect foil for the rounded heads of greenish-yellow flowers in spring. In autumn yellow fruit develop, contrasting with the boldly coloured late-season foliage, opening to reveal orange-scarlet seeds. Much like other spindles such as Euonymus planipes, the autumn display of colour foliage and fruit is perhaps the crowning glory of the plant and certain to be amongst the most eye-ctaching plants in the garden at that time of year.
Euonymus myrianthus is trouble free and easy going and will grow best in moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade, in time forming a large shrub.
