Ornamental Features

Emerald Gaiety Wintercreeper has attractive white-variegated dark green foliage on a plant with a spreading habit of growth. The glossy oval leaves are highly ornamental and remain dark green throughout the winter. It produces pink capsules from mid to late fall.

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.

Planting & Growing

Emerald Gaiety Wintercreeper will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 9 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub performs well in both full sun and full shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. 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.
