The Emerald Gaiety Euonymus is a versatile plant that will add year-round greenery to a landscape. Variegated foliage is mostly green with a creamy white along the midrib and margins. This perennial is a broadleaf evergreen, so the foliage will stay in place throughout the winter. The white margins will pick up hints of pink when the temperature turns chilly. The Euonymus fortunei is easy to maintain and has a variety of uses in a landscape.
This low-maintenance upright shrub makes for a lovely and leafy mass planting. When used in a bed or border, trim the reaching stems for a full, bushy shrub. Let the spreading stems explore to create a groundcover. Plant the Emerald Gaiety Euonymus near a structure or trellis where the branches can climb for added height and dimension or create a living privacy screen. Grow this plant as a perennial in USDA zones 5 through 8.
Emerald Gaiety Euonymus Care
Emerald Gaiety Euonymus needs full to partial sun and average, well-drained, slightly alkaline soil. New plants need very regular watering, but established plants only need a drink every few weeks.
This broadleaf evergreen does well without fertilizing when grown in rich soil. Plants grown in poor soil will benefit from applying balanced fertilizer each spring. Remove damaged growth at any time and shape the plant as needed in the late spring.
Emerald Gaiety Euonymus Spacing
Emerald Gaiety Euonymus is an upright shrub that will grow 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Plants can be grown 3 to 4 feet apart for a complete and dense look.
