Hardy Planting Zone
Wintercreeper can be used on slopes, banks, or as ground cover. It's often used in gravel and rock gardens. It reproduces by spreading creeping stems wherever the roots are in contact with the ground. Seeds can be dispersed by animals or water.
Bloom Season and Color
In general, Wintercreeper has shiny, oval leaves that grow early in the summer. In the fall, the leaves turn a reddish-purple. Blooms emerge in early summer and are small, greenish flowers.
Height at Maturity
It can be trained to grow in the desired direction. Wintercreeper can grow to a height of 12 to 15 inches. Its spread can reach 24 to 36 inches.
Preferred Soil Type
Wintercreeper can thrive in several soil types, clay, chalk, sand, or loam. It prefers soil that is moist but drains well. Quite hard, it can grow in sild that is neutral, acid, or alkaline. The water needs for this plant are average.
Sun or Shade
When it comes to shade or no shade, Wintercreeper is very adaptable. This plant is popular because it does well in any amount of sunlight, full sun, shade, or partial sun.
Purple Wintercreeper is distinguished by its dark green leaves that spread quickly forming, dense ground cover. It's ideal for smothering weeds and preventing erosion. It's one of the most popular evergreens for ground cover.
Since this vine is hardy, needs little attention, proliferates, and does well in many soil types and various states of sunlight, it is an excellent choice for those who want a ground cover that requires little maintenance.
Native to China, Japan, and Korea, wintercreeper, also known as creeping euonymus (Euonymus fortunei), is an evergreen ground cover that grows as a climbing vine. This particular vine climbs over anything in its path, including full-grown trees.
Wintercreeper tolerates a wide range of growing conditions. It will grow in full sun to deep shade on acidic, low nutrient, and bare garden-variety fertile soils. One condition that it does not like is heavy wet soil.
Its leaves are glossy dark green, oval-shaped, and slightly toothed. The one to two and a half inch-long leaves grow opposite on light-colored vines. The small, five-petaled, greenish flowers grow on long, branched stalks and produce small, round, pink-red capsules that expose their seeds when they split open.
