Whoever said evergreens only have to be one shade of green? Monocolored is so last year, spice up your evergreen game wit the Ivory Jade Wintercreeper (Euonymus fortunei 'Ivory Jade')!
Just as the name suggests, this shrub boasts beautiful green leaves with ivory white margins. It's not too shy either! You'll be simply charmed by the sheer amount of leaves this plant produces.
It's almost as if the tips of these leaves have a permanent snow dusting along its edges. It looks like a perfectly executed Pinterest project.
As the holiday's approach, you'd think Ivory Jade was dressing up to impress the inlaws. Instead of keeping its tried and true colors, its leaves will begin to be tinged with pink. Giving a nice contrast to the rich green leaves.
Or course, the true knockout feature of this plant is its ability to be used in so many different ways. Wanting it to fill in underneath another taller plant, it'll do that. Have a brick wall that's just begging for a little extra color, no problem!
Counting the ways this Wintercreeper gives you it's all would take all day, but snagging one of your own up is just a few moments away. Order yours from our expert growers here at Nature Hills Nursery today!
How to Use Ivory Jade Wintercreeper in the Landscape
Sure, Ivory Jade is a phenomenal addition to your garden in the usual ways. It'll accent a perennial flower bed without overpowering the brighter colors next to it.
You can also use this evergreen near the back of your garden and use it as a nice backdrop. Its evergreen nature will mean you're never without color wherever it's planted.
If you think Ivory Jade is just an evergreen shrub though, we've got some news for you! This specimen can climb!
Yes, you can have this fantastic foliage meander up a brick wall or add a pretty little trellis to your garden path and cover it with bright leaves highlighted by rich green centers! Talk about the photo opportunities!
Plus, just like when it accents perennial plants without overshadowing, it'll give your Instagram shots a unique background without taking over your picture.
While this Wintercreeper is a cottage garden owner's dream, you can also use this quite effectively as a groundcover if you've got a bit of space to cover. It also makes an excellent low border for the edges of your property.
Do you have a Japanese Maple or another accent tree that needs a little bit of eye candy towards the ground? Ivory Jade has you, and the ground, covered!
#ProPlantTips For Care
Ivory Jade gets the gold star when it comes to easy to grow plants. Simply plant it either full sun or partial shade, perhaps a little more on the shady side in particularly hot regions.
When picking out the perfect spot to plant this specimen, well drained soil will make it the happiest, and good air circulation is always a good idea and a great way to make sure you have the healthiest plant possible.
Ivory Jade isn't too picky about urban settings either. It'll thrive even in those rather polluted inner-city environments.
Should you like to give your Wintercreeper a little trim, we recommend doing so in the early spring, before the growing season really begins. Just grab your favorite pair of sharp shears and prune where needed.
If you'd like, consider adding a layer of mulch around your plant starting about one inch away from the base. Not only does this add to the overall aesthetic of your garden, but it'll also help shield the roots from the worst of the heat and conserve water!
Use this uniquely growing plant anywhere you'd like a little pop of color. The green with white variegated leaf margins brings that added "wow" to your garden wherever it's planted. Order an Ivory Jade Wintercreeper to finish your garden projects today!
