The Q&A Archives: Euonymus "silver Princess"

Question: I have seen Euonymus "Silver Princess" (Moness) one time recently in a nursery in Long Island, New York recently. Now, going back to stores, nobody seems to have heard of this shrub (they only know "silver king"). The "Silver Princess" is described on your web site (Monrovia Item # 3525). WHERE CAN I BUY THEM? The retailers identified in your web site do not carry them and they do not want to order just 2 plants (that's all I want).
Thank you

Answer: Unfortunately, a quick search did not reveal any current sources for Euonymus japonicus 'Moness' or the Silver Princess Boxleaf Euonymous. Most catalogs are also in between seasons and have stopped shipping for the time being in preparation for their 2003 catalogs. Perhaps you would have luck widening your zip code search (nurseries in larger cities perhaps) or in the spring when most nurseries tend to carry their widest selection of plants. They might also consider ordering it for you if they do not already plan on carrying it in their stock on hand. Another possibility would be if they could suggest a substitute that they do have in stock. I'm really sorry I can't be more helpful.
