Whoever said evergreens only have to be one shade of green? Monocolored is so last year, spice up your broadleaf evergreen game with the Ivory Jade Euonymus Wintercreeper (Euonymus fortunei 'Ivory Jade')! Just as the name suggests, this shrub boasts beautiful green leaves with ivory-white margins.

Ivory Jade isn't 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 in-laws! Snip a few stems for your indoor bouquets throughout the year. Once winter settles in, Instead of keeping its tried and true colors, Ivory Jade leaves begin to be tinged with pink, providing a nice contrast to the rich green leaves. Hardy throughout chilly USDA growing zones 5 to hot and steamy zone 9, these plants can spread 5-6 feet wide but only grow 18 - 24 inches tall unless they bump up against a wall or vertical obstruction when they can build up a bit taller.

Birds eat the seeds and can spread them a bit too easily, so in some states, Wintercreepers are not able to be shipped to you. Nature Hills has developed Plant Sentry™, our very own compliance software that will not allow the sale or shipment of any plant that your state has prohibited from being purchased and grown where it is restricted. Keeping sensitive environments safe.

Planting and Application:

Of course, the true knockout feature of the Ivory Jade Wintercreeper Euonymus is its ability to be used in so many different ways! Want it to fill in beneath another taller plant? It'll do that! Have a brick wall that's just begging for a little extra color? No problem! Ivory Jade even brightens planters and containers as a spiller and a filler!

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 broadleaved evergreen as a great filler, groundcover, or edging plant used in mass. Its broadleaved evergreen nature will mean you're never without color wherever it's planted.

Its spreading form not only fills hard-to-mow hillsides but also works as erosion control along banks and steep slopes, transforming them into variegated beauty year-round. Likewise, these spreading broadleaf evergreens fill landscapes with low-growing colors! Acting as living mulch and groundcover, you'll fill in any sunny garden or add a shiny touch of color to garden edges and along pathways or the driveway.

When given something to climb, Wintercreeper leaps to new heights! Hide an ugly chainlink, wood, brick, or stone wall by planting Euonymus at the base and let it creep and climb for year-round white and greenery! Let these beauties climb over the siding of an outbuilding, trellis, or lattice fence.

While this Groundcover Euonymus 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 some afternoon shade especially in the warmer zones.

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 Euonymus 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 them 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!

Give shrubs in zone 5 a good anti-desiccant and a good drink in the fall to keep them from drying out throughout the winter. You might get away with growing this beauty in zone 4 in a protected location like the east side of your home out of the winter winds.

  • Full Sun & Some Afternoon Shade
  • Hardy Euonymus Does Best In Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate to Low Moisture
  • Easy to Maintain - Prune In Spring
  • Deer Resistant
