Euonymus As Foundation Planting

I did a previous post on using Euonymus fortunei Emerald Gaiety as a foundation planting. My last picture in the post left you looking at some tiny Euonymus plants I had rooted. It also showed a dead Bermuda lawn. (I killed it). The picture can be seen here: Euonymus

Today, I ripped out my dying pansies in preparation to planting summer flowers. With my sunken tubs bare, I realized just how much the Euonymus had grown.

I remember stating in the last post that within two years the Euonymus should have covered the foundation wall. This post is to show just how much it has grown in one year.

I have already trimmed it once as it was getting higher than the wall. I also trimmed it to help it fill out more at its base. Not bad for one year's growth. I love this stuff.

And of course, this post gives me another opportunity to show off my beloved Falcon Four grass. Yes!

It'll be a cold day when I plant Bermuda, again!

Some of you who know I manipulate pictures may be inclined to think I enhanced the grass in the picture. I assure you, I did not.


My lawn is the most beautiful 'stand of grass' I have ever seen in my life. That's why I keep preaching Falcon Four to you. Remember that name this Fall.

Falcon four is one of the newer turf type tall fescue grasses. To my knowledge, it is the highest rated grass of this type.

You can read all the technical info, here:

And here is a shot of my front lawn planted in Falcon four. I used the pure seed. I did not use a blend.

Is the euonymus an evergreen, and does it stay low, or can it get out of hand? I'm interested in replacing all my overgrown foundation plantings with something tamer.


Mine got out of hand and need to be cut down or ripped out.
