Euonymus fortunei 'Kewensis'

Wintercreeper Euonymus

Plant Type:

BROADLEAF EVERGREEN SHRUBS

Euonymus fortunei ‘Kewensis’ – An elfin selection of Wintercreeper Euonymus - very sweet. Tiny rounded deep green leaves with lighter veining running up and down the stems. Most leaves remain green the year round; however, some turn bright fire engine red as the weather cools and the days shorten, like little rubies strewn among the emeralds. ‘Kewensis’ will form a mat or slowly climb upon a boulder or a trunk if you would like. If left to its own vices over time it actually grows onto itself forming an interesting cone-shaped structure like a pixie hut! It is adaptable from complete open shade to full sun in fertile to less than perfect soils, even clay. For northern gardeners spring planting may the wiser tactic. Cutting grown.
