The European species in the Euonymus family is known as the Spindle tree.

This shohin size example has been created from garden centre material and features that attractive variegated leak. It is an evergreen. The tree is 27 cm. high with a spread of 28 cm. The trunk at the base is 2.5 cm. across. The ceramic pot measures 17x17x 8 cm. An unusual addition to any shohin display.
