A supremely attractive vine or mounded shrub featuring pronounced white-variegated evergreen leaves; a feature color accent for almost any screening application, great in masses, will actually climb structures or can be grown as a shrub

Ornamental Features

Emerald Gaiety Wintercreeper has attractive white-variegated dark green foliage. The glossy oval leaves are highly ornamental and remain dark green throughout the winter. It produces pink capsules from mid to late fall. The flowers are not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Emerald Gaiety Wintercreeper is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and can be pruned at anytime. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Emerald Gaiety Wintercreeper is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • Rock/Alpine Gardens
  • General Garden Use
  • Groundcover

Planting & Growing

Emerald Gaiety Wintercreeper will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should be grown in a location that is shaded from the hot afternoon sun. It prefers to grow in average to dry locations, and dislikes excessive moisture. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.

Note:

Morning sun only. An east or northeast exposure is preferable.
