Evergreen Turns Purple and Grows Anywhere

Purple Wintercreeper Euonymus, Euonymus fortunei 'Coloratus', also known as Wintercreeper and Wintercreeper Eunonymus, is a dense, woody-stemmed, broadleaf evergreen vine which comes in a variety of forms.

Euonymus fortunei 'Coloratus',commonly called purple wintercreeper euonymus, is primarily a trailing ground cover form which typically grows to 2 feet tall. It spreads by rooting stems as a sprawling, tangled, bushy mat.

It is similar in habit to English ivy, in that it spreads along the ground, rooting as it goes, until it reaches a vertical surface which it then begins to climb.It features lustrous, ovate to elliptic, dark green leaves (1-2" long) which turn dark purple in fall and winter.

If allowed to climb a wall, tree or other structure, this plant assumes more vine-like characteristics. It is one of the most popular evergreen ground covers available in commerce today. This plant is a good ground cover for slopes. It is also used for container plantings, massing and erosion control.
