GOLD SPLASH® Euonymus

Zone: 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 1-2' Width/Spread: 1.5-2'

Get some color where you need it with Gold Splash wintercreeper! Its low, mounded habit is tidy and polite. It naturally maintains a slightly rounded habit, but takes to pruning easily and doesn’t get unruly. Its oval-shaped leaves are filled with cheerful variegation – splashes of lime green at the centers and chartreuse margins surrounding them. This coloring is very reliable (you won’t have to worry about half of your plant reverting to solid colors). The colors do shift a bit as the foliage matures throughout the season. The old growth shifts from lime and chartreuse to being lime and slightly darker green, still very impactful! This growth isn’t always visible as the new growth tends to cover it as it creeps.

Light: Will grow in a range of light exposures.

Soil: Grows well in a range of soils, but they must be well-draining.

Water: Has average water needs, but is quite drought tolerant once it’s established.

Fertilizing: Not typically necessary.

Pruning: Takes well to shaping, do so in early spring.

Other: Works well as foliage filler for flower arrangements. Be sure to remove any leaves that will be below the water, as it prolongs the stem’s life and keeps the water from getting cloudy as fast.
