I have a collection and wear whatever is dry on the day. But in winter when they're saturated, (eg after stuffing the shredder), they can dry so solid they don't bend anymore. Can usually be forced though but they have a short life

Damaged Euonymus alatus

That really depends on whether it's on its own roots or is grafted. If it's grafted and all the grafted part is damaged you may be left with Euonymus europaeus or whatever elatus is grafted onto. They do fine on their own roots, but often are grafted.

When was it taken?

Was it very tall?

Was it woody?

What sort of place was it growing in?

It's traditional in English gardening to have a sharp, well edged drop off between lawn and border.

I hate that
