The Q&A Archives: Golden Euonymus

Question: Why is there no yellow? I planted Golden Euonymus about 4 years ago. they had a lot of color the first year but since then they are solid green, there is no yellow on them. I have tried different types of fertilizer and nothing helps, how can i get the color back? Thanks

Answer: Golden euonymus colors best in bright sun, in too much shade it will turn more chartreuse and lose a lot of the yellow. Also, sometimes there will be an individual bit of new growth that is especially green, this should always be cut off as soon as it appears to preserve the gold. In your case, though, since they all changed, I would suspect the location is too shady.
