Gardeners' Notes:

I received a small specimen of Manhattan Euonymus from a friend. It grew steadily into a substantial shrub, although under the shade of a nearby cherry tree. The tree was removed two years ago and the Manhattan shrub has grown by leaps and bounds in what is now full sun. In July, it was a swarming mass of wasps and bees and flies, every type for miles, an amazing zoological show, all enjoying the aroma of the flowers. I favor this shrub for its glossy foliage, evergreen and very useful in Christmas Day arrangements for the feasting table. I also like the density of the branching habit and its bright green color, making a nice privacy screen along the property line.

I have 6 shrubs growing in full sun. They do fine with no watering or care. They are very dense and full, the foliage stay green all year. They look ok unpruned too. However when in bloom, there are millions flies on the plants!

Although I like many features of this plant, including its ease of culture, propagation, performance in partial shade, ability to be sheared, glossy evergreen foliage, etc., I am listing it here as a negative because of its tendency to attract flies when in bloom. This makes 'Manhattan' a poor choice for locations where this characteristic would be an annoyance, such as by entrances, pools or barbecue areas.

This is a nice bold foliage plant in my opinion and is quite tough. In the Peoria, IL area it dies back in most winters to the ground. We had snowcover most of the recent winter so many above ground branches remained alive. Its a very quick grower so in zone 5 this dieback can be helpful.
