Fortunei group of evergreen euonymus = wintercreeper is native to China a got its name by a botanist Robert Fortune who collected plants in China since the 19th century, and was also the first to have introduced tea plant to India.

Canadale Gold is a sensational, fully hardy variety with large, gently serrated, ovate to rounded leaves of mid green colour with bright yellow margins that turn pink in winter. It grows vigorously and bushy in sun or not too deep shade.

Wintercreepers are excellent, low shrubs that not only withstand low temperatures to some -30°C but retain the foliage without any damage. Canadale Gold is the answer to tender Japanese large-leaved varieties which are not hardy enough to keep all its leaves throughout winter and often the twigs, too, can be damaged by harsh frost.

It can be pruned in the spring or in mid summer. It prefers slightly acidic, moist soil. Fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5), possibly more.
