Irish Mint Euonymus is a dense, upright shrub from Southern Living Plants. Irish Mint is known for its light green new growth that can appear almost white in colder climates. Euonymus is a popular selection for landscapers due to its uniform appearance, wide soil acceptance and hardiness in varying degrees of sun. Irish Mint boasts exceptional disease and pest resistance. It is hardy in USDA Zones 6 – 9. It grows3-4′ H x 1-2′ W. It works well as a low-growing hedge, a textural fill, along borders, or as a vertical accent in containers.
For a low-growing hedge, plant your Irish Mint Euonymus 1-1.5 feet apart. For an accent-style planting, leave 3+ feet from the next closest plant.
