Emerald 'N Gold Wintercreeper
Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald 'n Gold'
|Description||This colorful evergreen shrub sports bright green leaves with gold edges, turning pinkish red in fall and winter. Spreads by creeping stems that root where they touch the ground. Dense mounding form makes an excellent small hedge or border plant. Gently climbs with support, making a nice background or foundation planting.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 2 ft. tall and 5 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||A very brilliant golden plant that makes dreary winter landscapes more cheerful. Makes a fine single specimen, but lower stature makes a fine barrier hedge inside existing gardens, or along the perimeter. Be careful with red volcanic gravels or bronze plants, and best combined with greens and neutral colored flowers.|
|Companion Plants||Juniper (Juniperus); Weigela (Weigela); Spirea (Spiraea); Potentilla (Potentilla); Boxwood (Buxus)|
|Care||Adaptable and easy to grow in average, well-drained soils; avoid poorly drained, soggy soils. Takes shade, particularly in hot climates. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Fertilize in early spring. Prune annually to shape.|
