This Euonymus Paloma Blanca evergreen patio tree is trained into a single lollipop stem. With its classic shape and interesting foliage, this is the perfect tree to sit solitary in small gardens, patios, borders or mixed containers.
A Euonymus Paloma Blanca patio tree can reach an optimum height of 200cm and spread of up to 150cm over a 10-20 year period.
The compact shape of this Paloma Blanca cultivar makes it an ideal patio tree. Only light pruning is needed to maintain the tree’s neat size and shape. This low-maintenance tree is perfect for beginners and makes a striking evergreen patio plant.
As with all outdoor trees in pots, this patio tree requires regular watering during spells of dry weather. Be sure not to over-hydrate, but make sure the tree doesn't dry out. Plant it in moderately fertile, moist, well-draining soil.
Euonymus Paloma Blanca is valued for its changing evergreen foliage. The leaves are almost pure white when they appear in spring, turning a much darker shade of green as the season progresses. This produces a bi-coloured effect with the early-emerging white leaves decorating the dark green foliage underneath.
Euonymus Paloma Blanca is also known as Japanese spindle tree but is more often called white candle due to the bright white, almost flame-shaped, leaves that appear from early spring. This cultivar grows well in pots and containers and is perfect for brightening up patios, driveways and terraces, as well as flanking entrances.
Euonymus is often grown as an evergreen shrub in garden borders. However, trained into a patio tree shape, it makes an excellent addition to any garden. Patio trees provide height and structure to an outdoor space, enhancing garden design and decorating areas of paving or decking.
This Paloma Blanca variety features a tall single stem trunk with a mound of dense foliage at the top. The leathery, glossy leaves are toothed and produce an unusual effect throughout the year. The first leaves to emerge in early March to June are white, with progressively darker green leaves following. Insignificant green flowers appear in spring and fruit may occasionally appear on mature plants in autumn.
Japanese spindle is a hardy patio tree, however, you may wish to provide additional insulation around the pot to protect the roots against winter frost damage. White candle thrives in moist, well-draining soil and is happy in most soil types. Like all plants, pot-grown specimens do need to be watered more frequently. Position the tree in partial shade or full sun to bring out the contrasting colour of the leaves.
