Need a ground-hugging shrub that thrives in sun and shade? The Canadale Gold Euonymus (Euonymus fortunei 'Canadale Gold') produces large green broadleaf evergreen leaves with a deep golden yellow margin that are borne on strong branches to form a sturdy compact plant!

The glossy oval leaves of Canadale Gold are ornamental and showy and hold their color throughout the cold winters, hot summers, and sun or shade alike without fading! Despite being small and not very showy the flowers are loved by butterflies and bees, then produce pink capsules from mid to late fall.

Pretty Canadale Gold Wintercreeper remains green and gold all winter long and is accented by its compact 2-foot by 2-foot size! It fits well into even tight spaces and even tolerates shearing! Salt-tolerant, it rambles through roadside 'hell strip', or in coastal areas without problems! Urban-pollution tolerant, there are few places where these hardy plants won't grow!

The Canadale Gold Wintercreeper are very heat-tolerant and cold-hardy throughout USDA zones 4 to 9, this Euonymus is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

Planting and Application:

Euonymus remain compact, which makes them excellent modern foundation plants. It can be grown in either a formal, clipped hedge or left to grow in its natural form. Canadale Gold also works well when planted in a row of specimen plants that stand alone as individual small shrubs.

Oh so versatile, use it in a wide variety of ways, including low hedge plantings, mass plantings, mixed borders, and more! People love the bold look of this glowing golden plant when used as a striking hedge edging your walk or fence! Complementary blue and purple flowering plants would appreciate the visual lift with this edging plant at their feet.

If you like a cheerful look, pair it with other gold-toned plants to match and they coordinate beautifully with yellow flowering shrubs. Go for a more dramatic look with dark-colored foliage plants, or underplanting wine-colored foliage trees and shrubs with contrasting gold and green Canadale Gold to brighten their canopy.

People use this colorful beauty in place of a Boxwood hedge to bring more texture and give a fresh bright gold twist to define a formal garden. Don't forget to include some near your Rock Garden as an accent, too.

Use these tough plants as a mass planting in open sunnier beds and embankments. It would be so much easier and safer than mowing. The phenomenal variegation on this evergreen makes it a bold ornamental that belongs at your entrance walkway or patio all year round.

Plant a short, tight hedge with plants 2 feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next. Plant Canadale Gold in a checkerboard pattern from 2 feet to 3 feet apart to easily and quickly cover a large amount of ground. You'll love the sunny splash of bright color.

Use this as a compact "Filler" in your mix of container plants at your entrance or patio. A vibrant two-tone shrub also makes a fabulous mixer in large container gardens. Be sure to clip some of the bright foliage to include in your cut flower arrangements!
