Will Euonymus Bush That Has Invaded Garden Die If Runners Are Cut

Question From: Mountville, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: My euonymus bush has ruined my garden. I have bush runners in part of my yard that I cannot remove because the shovel get through. So, almost a 1/4 of my yard is unusable. My husband claims the shrub will die if I can cut any of those runners. What can I do ?

A: The shrub will not die if you cut away the runners. But if this shrub is as problematic as you say I would want to get rid of it. Best Nancy
