The Q&A Archives: Euonymus in Container

Question: I would like to use Euonymus japonicus 'Chollipo' as a container plant to provide an accent on a deck, shearing it to maintain size and shape. Is this reasonable? Do you have any recommendations on care?

Answer: Euonymus japonicus 'Chollipo' is a narrow, erect evergreen with green leaves bordered in white. The mature size of your plant will be 12 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide. You can shear it annually to keep it smaller. 'Chollipo' will adapt to many growing and soil conditions, making it well-suited to growing in a container. To help your euonymus thrive, provide full sunshine, well-draining soil, and plenty of room all around to encourage good air circulation. This will help your plant avoid fungal diseases.
