Just a Pic

Because I’m feeling un-talky today. :-)

ugly shrub

“Ugly Shrub” (Clickable if you want to see it larger in a new window.)

PS…Ok, one little bit of talk - I planted three of these whatever-they-ares (forget the name!) on the north side of our house a few years ago because I thought the variegated leaves would be pretty in the shade. But two of them have died and this last one is as scruffy as a Hollywood actor after a 3-day binge. I really should pull it out and replace it, but I haven’t bothered to yet. I still think the leaves are kind of pretty, even if the shrub itself is a hot mess.

    Looks like it could be a golden euonymous. Shame b/c their foliage is so pretty and evergreen when they are healthy.

    I was going to suggest eunoymous as well. The green ones are shockingly red in the autumn.

    Might I suggest some hosta for your shady areas?

    Hi - I’m in agreement, that they sure do look like eunoymous; the ones I had here in southern Ontario did well in the sun not the shade - perhaps just moving it wil give it a revival.

    I do like the leaves. But scraggliness? Not so much.
