    Named after Gus Bolwijn when he discovered it among his a batch of Euonymus 'Sunspot' liners he had growing.
    A very hardy Euonymus that is sunburn resistant. It looks good year around and stays nicely mounded without sprawling, like many Euonymus do.

    Blondy is tolerant of most soils, but does not like standing water. Does well with pruning that can be done anytime of the year, but fall is best.

    Occasionally a solid green branch will appear. Just prune it out.
