Description

Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald Gaiety'

Euonymus ‘Emerald Gaiety’ is a small evergreen shrub that integrates into any scheme.  Its cream and green foliage offers year round interest and make a brilliant foil for other plants.

Its prostrate, bushy habit makes it ideal for ground cover or as a low maintenance edging plant for paths and borders. It can be grown as a low hedge and also be trained as a climber if planted against a wall.

A tough and vigorous evergreen shrub whose virtues have been recognised with an RHS Award of Garden Merit.  It has a bushy habit and its rounded mid-green leaves have irregular white margins and are tinged with pink in the winter. It very occasionally produces insignificant green flowers in May and June.

All of our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the pots aren't measured).

Growing Euonymus 'Emerald Gaiety'

Any well drained soil in sun or partial shade. Drought tolerant when established. 

It is hardy and evergreen pretty much throughout Britain, but in a harsher than average Scottish winter it might drop its leaves.

As with any variegated plant, prune out pure green-leaved stems if and when they appear.

‘Emerald Gaiety’ makes a versatile addition to borders and shrubberies. Its attractive green and white foliage combines well with a wide colour palette. Sensational with bright red or yellow tulips or cool blue salvias and lavenders, it also contrasts beautifully set alongside a purple smoke bush or black elderflower.

Euonymus are generally pest free and easy to care for. You might occasionally need to tackle pests such as vine weevil and diseases like powdery mildew, but good gardening practices, such as appropriate weeding and feeding, together with our range of organic garden products, will help keep your shrubs healthy and beautiful.
