I am about to remove a hedge of box leaf euonymous because they were affected by scale that I was not able to control. Is it possible to plant the same species in this spot again?

Euonymus Scale is a common pest, and if you plant it again, you are likely to be revisited by that same pest. It is recommended to try different plant that is not related to euonymus. This is a fun interactive shrub selector from University of Illinois Extension that you can select shrubs and there are pictures of the shrubs along with facts pests, growth requirements, etc. Go to http://urbanext.illinois.edu/ShrubSelector/
Many of our ornamental cultivated plants we use in the landscape are common and easily available, and although this is Illinois website, many of the shrubs would work here in Utah.
