  • Description

  • Notes

Canadale Gold Wintercreeper is a sturdy, evergreen plant with brightly colored golden-yellow colored margins on bright green foliage. Moderate grower to about 4 feet tall and 3 to 3-1/2 feet wide. Evergreen. Makes a nice edge around a shrub or perennial border, or a low hedge.
Plant in full sun; will tolerate part sun, but coloration may fade a bit. Plant in loamy, well drained soils. E. fortunei, sometimes called wintercreeper, has an almost vine-like quality, and will grow over rocks or cascade over walls. Euonymus, in general, don't take well to shearing unless it is at the base (they get very dense on the outside byt the lack of sunlight and the dry air encourages spider mites and scale). To control size or shape, prune selectively or renovate in the spring; see Guides.
