Harlequin euonymus in east-facing yard?

jenny_b(z7 DC)August 19, 2005

My front foundation bed has several taxus media "everlow"s, some boxes, and some hollies, with a weeping Japanese maple as a centerpiece. I'd like to add something with lighter foliage for contrast with all the dark evergreens and I fell in love with a pot of Euonymus fortunei "Harlequin" and the way it looks against the yews. Will I be sorry if I plant a few among other low, spreading things? Will it be ok in a border that gets a couple-three hours of morning sun?

I had a couple of similar euonymous in the bed on the north side of my old house. They never did get direct sunlight at all, but it was a very bright area in general--and they did just fine.

As to whether or not you'll be sorry for putting it there... I have no idea! :)
