Sizing guide

Euonymus 'Tom Thumb' is a dwarf cultivar of the Euonymus fortunei, a popular evergreen shrub native to East Asia. 'Tom Thumb' is a compact and slow-growing variety, reaching a height of only about 30cm tall and wide. It is valued for its small size and attractive foliage. Can be kept trimmed even smaller if desired. 
The leaves of Euonymus 'Tom Thumb' are oval-shaped and have a glossy dark green color, which may turn purplish-bronze in winter. The plant produces inconspicuous greenish-white flowers in late spring to early summer, followed by small reddish-purple fruits that are ornamental but not typically significant.
Euonymus 'Tom Thumb' is commonly used as a low-maintenance ground cover, in rock gardens, or as an edging plant. Its small size makes it suitable for container gardening, and it can also be used as a bonsai specimen. It is a hardy plant that tolerates a wide range of growing conditions, including full sun to partial shade and various soil types.
When planting Euonymus 'Tom Thumb', it is important to provide well-draining soil and regular watering, especially during dry periods. Pruning can be done in early spring to shape the plant or remove any dead or damaged branches. However, since 'Tom Thumb' has a naturally compact form, pruning requirements are minimal.
Overall, Euonymus 'Tom Thumb' is a popular choice for gardeners looking for a small, versatile, and attractive evergreen shrub with low maintenance needs.
