The Q&A Archives: Euonymus Japonica Microphyllus Improved

Question: What is the difference between Euonymus Japonica Microphyllus and Euonymus Japonica Microphyllus Improved? What specifically is the difference in plant size/height/growth. Thank you. Mike Knight.

Answer: Boxleaf euonymus is a compact, small leafed shrub growing 1-2' high and half as wide. E. j. microphylla ?Improved?, is also dwarf 1?2' tall and wide; erect with small closely arranged right dark green leaves. It has a very formal appearance, and no pruning is necessary. The difference between the plants is not so much size as the compact nature of the foliage.
