Thomas Jefferson listed the “Evergreen spindle-tree” as an ornamental shrub in his only published book, Notes on the State of Virginia. This North American shrub is desirable for its showy fruits, broom-like evergreen stems, and glossy green leaves, which turn yellow-green or sometimes red in fall. It was one of the first New World plants to be introduced to Europe and Britain in 1683. The European Euonymous, or spindle tree, was so-named for the four-sided branches, which were used to make spindles. Bernard McMahon also called it “Evergreen Spindle-tree” in The American Gardener’s Calendar, 1806.

Bare root planting tips:
  • If you can't plant immediately, store your plant in a cool location and keep the roots moist or pot in a container with a nursery potting mix from your local garden center.
  • Before planting, let the roots soak for several hours as you prepare the site. You'll want to dig a large enough hole so the root mass can spread out and the plant is at the same soil level as when it was growing in the nursery.
  • Once planted, water it in well and wait a month before fertilizing. Mulching will help to maintain moisture and raise soil temperatures for faster growth.
