Shrub Identification Help

Hi, I just purchased a home with some landscaping, and I am currently in the process of trying to identify some of the shrubs and flowers that I've inherited. :) There is one shrub in particular that I'm having trouble identifying, as there are a lot of shrubs that look very similar. Below is a link to pictures of this shrub. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Looks like a Euonymus.

RE: Shrub Identification Help

Yes, it does. Probably Euonymus kiautschovicus, maybe 'Manhattan.'

They're very hardy, have nice glossy foliage, but they don't have showy flowers, so are not usually grown as a "specimen" but more likely as a hedge or screening plant.

They're fast growing and easy to propagate from cuttings, and they can take lots of shade. I use them as a screen between & below a line of blue spruce.
