I have a foundation shrub I think I have identified as Euonymus kiautschovicus. I have lived here for nearly five years, now and I hate this thing more with each passing year. It looks like a 8-10 shrub that has been trimmed to 3.5 feet for 40 years. When it blooms it is covered with flies. It is just way too big for the location; I have trouble using the walkway to the garage unless I keep it trimmed constantly. It is also a formal evergreen broadleaf in the middle of my plantings of informal perinnials. I don't have access to a buffed out teenager, and I have limited muscle power. My current thought is to chop it off at ground level and paint it with glyphosate (roundup). But how long will it take to rot? Would I be able to plant around it? Is there a better way?
