Country Gold Euonymus Growing and Maintenance Tips

Euonymus can tolerate a range of soils and conditions, but have no tolerance for standing water. 'Country Gold' requires more sun than other cultivars to keep the vibrant, gold colouring in the leaves. Young plants can benefit from protection (burlap wrap) against drying, winter winds in an exposed location.
