Its lovely very attractive with its varigated leaves, how big does it grow?

Carole - I first saw this in a local front garden where it had grown to the top of the garden wall - about 4ft. I find it very slow growing and the ultimate height in 10 to 20 years is 1.5-2.5 metres. Hope that helps. :o)

Yes Bloomer I think I do want one!
I saw a nice dainty euonymus today with variegated green, cream and pink leaves......I want that as well but John just keeps on walking!!! Must go to the GC all by myself next time!

I don't think you would regret it,Chris..it's a must have ,isn't it? I'm sure John wouldn't have left you behind..or he might even have come back to give you the money to buy that Euonymous..:o)..I think it sounds similar to one I have,although mine doesn't have the pink leaves..very slow growing too..more a ground cover really..is that like the one you saw ?
