          I find the variegated version often reverts to plain green if you give it a chance.;):smile:

              Cuttings are very easy just make sure you take well variegated shoots.
              And cut out any totally green parts from the existing bushes.:old::biggrin:

                  We have lots of different Euonymus but probably do not let them grow enough to get the seed capsules. :noidea: We cut most of them with the hedge cutter as they are so vigorous.

                  Something to watch out for. One of our very large (10ft high and 5ft diameter) variegated ones got infested with Euonymus scale. We had to eventually remove the whole thing last year. :sad:

                    Yes when I mentioned it to hubs he said the same thing @shiney, our other ones are quite large and he trims them annually too. This is a smaller one and that's why I noticed the seed pods.

                    Thankfully we've never had scale, some of ours are quite old ....so keeping :fingers crossed:.
                    Thanks:)
