Euonymus companions

tilleyOctober 18, 2007

I have 2 yellow-green variegated euonymus shrubs in a small island bed that I want to renovate. South-west exposure, sun almost all day except for middle morning / late afternoon (shaded by house and tall privet hedge respectively).

I plan a backdrop of green miscanthus (Gigantea or similar, definitely not variegated). What else should look good with these? I need something between the two shrubs and maybe in he foreground? I would say hostas would look good, but they will be burned by all that sun, won't they?

Would Liriope work? Not as tall as hostas, but tolerates the sun better in my climate.

Have you tried platycodon, gaillardia, Redbor kale, red calaloo?
