Ornamental Features

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

Landscape Attributes

Moonshadow Wintercreeper is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

Planting & Growing

Moonshadow Wintercreeper will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 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 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 typical garden 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.
