Plants in the genus Euonymus are fairly common in Southern landscapes, although only about 220,000 are produced by nurserymen each year. Because of its varied leaf size, color, and form and its varied growth pattern, euonymus can be used in many situations.
Several scales, the Japanese weevil, and spider mites have been reported on euonymus in the Southeast. The most important pest of euonymus is the euonymus scale.
