Euonymus out of control
I have Euonymus Fortunei 'Tricolor' in 2 of my front gardens. I have never really trimmed it back; so it has spread considerably over the years, overtaking many of the other plants. How severely can I prune it, and how do I control it to smaller areas of the garden?

Euonymus can be pruned back to within a couple inches of the ground, and it will still resprout. I assume that it has rooted in wherever it has come into contact with the soil. If you'd like to remove it from some sections, you may need to dig it out. Then keep it trimmed to a manageable size with an annual pruning in winter.
