The Coloratus Wintercreeper is a low maintenance perennial shrub, evergreen in nature. It stays true to its name, providing valuable ground cover during the winter. This perennial changes with the seasons, and turns deep purple in the winter months. This shrub perks up to green in the spring, as temperature warms and blooms with white flowers in the early summer.
The Coloratus Wintercreeper is hardy in zones four through eight. This perennial typically grows densely outward with broadleaf green foliage, and woody stems. It is low maintenance in nature, and spreads easily. This practical addition to the landscape can serve as border ground cover, while also preventing erosion. Additionally, it should be noted that it climbs like ivy which can be valuable if that is what action is sought, otherwise avoid planting next to fencing or the home.
Coloratus Wintercreeper Plant Care
The Coloratus Wintercreeper can be planted in full sun, or in the shade as well. It grows well in an area with average soil moisture, as long as it’s not overly wet. It prefers well drained soil. It is slightly drought tolerant, but should be watered if kept in full sun and a period of dry weather is observed.
Trimming and pruning isn’t necessary for this plant's vitality. It can be useful, however, to keep this plant and its growth in check.
Coloratus Wintercreeper Spacing
This is a relatively short perennial shrub, reaching six to 12 inches in height. It can be spaced as little as six to nine inches apart.
