Answer: This plant (Euonymus kiautschovicus "Manhattan" prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade, as do the Euonymus fortunei cultivars. In deep shade, it will be very thin and sparse. In a windy exposed location, it may suffer some winter burn and be more deciduous. Evergreens for shade that might add variety to your planting could include Sarcococca (fragrant flowers) and Aucuba (there are some variegated forms). Although deciduous, you might also consider using hostas and ferns for their textural interest. I hope this helps.
