Euonymus japonicus, the Japanese Spindle-tree, was introduced to cultivation in 1804. Its popularity as a garden plant, particularly for hedges and on the coast, was soon established and continues today for a number of reasons. As well as being evergreen, its dense habit of growth and tolerance of clipping makes it very suitable for urban hedging. Its rich dark green colour provides a plain background for more showy plants. Deposits of dust, soot, salt and pollen are easily washed off its glossy green leaves by rain, an attribute it has in common with garden privet, cherry laurel, escallonia and others, and which contributed to its widespread use in Victorian and later times. Although it produces attractive orange fruits it is not yet naturalised: one to watch. LinkExternal link
