    Wintercreeper – Euonymus fortunei


    Winter creeper vine is a fast-growing shrubby plant, often used for groundcover. This member of the Staff-tree family grows to between six and 12 inches as groundcover, or may grow as a shrub up to three feet in height. Although characteristics of this plant vary among cultivars, the leaves are typically bright to dark green and about an inch long. Some cultivars, such as Moonshadow, feature dark green outer edges with a lighter green highlighting the center of the leaf. Only adult plants produce flowers and seeds. The small, subtle blooms are light greenish, growing in clusters throughout the summer. The seeds typically reveal themselves by autumn, forming as light pink casings which burst open like papery little pods. The seeds within are glossy, bright orange and shaped like tiny kidney beans.

    Winter creeper thrives in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 8, and grows throughout the United States, although this plant is actually native to China. It is extremely versatile, tolerating a wide range of conditions from full sun to full shade. The best soil for this plant is moist and well-draining, but it will grow in most soil conditions except overly wet. While it is considered invasive, due to its extremely fast growth rate and high tolerance for growing conditions, Winter creeper is a useful landscaping element. Control of its rapid growth can keep this plant where you want it, or you can choose to allow it free reign in order to camouflage unsightly areas of your yard. Because it is an evergreen, Euonymus fortunei serves as a leafy point of interest year-round, offering its various looks throughout the seasons – from dormant in winter, to flowering in summer, to fruiting in fall. And, because it is so hearty, your plant will arrive healthy and ready to put in the ground.
