Euonymus japonicus ‘Happiness’ is a relatively dwarf evergreen and its special feature is its foliage. The new growth is pale green then fading to pale yellow and maturing to a rich golden yellow before; the foliage color makes a colorful contrast with the stems which remain green. Eventually the foliage turns dark green, creating the ideal background against which the bright new foliage is shown off.
Developing into a low mound about 8in high and 10in wide after three years, eventually it reaches about 24in high and 30in wide. So it’s relatively slow growing, but is also robust and tolerant of a wide range of conditions.
