How to Grow and Care for Emerald N’ Gold Wintercreeper

Emerald N’ Gold Wintercreeper (Eunonymus fortuneli ‘Emerald ‘n’ Gold’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 5-9 outdoors


Plant in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day on average). Although this variety prefers full sunlight, it will tolerate shade.

These shrubs prefer acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it’s sandy or heavy in clay, as long as it’s well-draining. Dig a hole that’s large enough to accommodate your shrub’s root ball, place your shrub, and backfill the soil. Finally, mulch the surrounding soil and water.


Let your surrounding soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches. Once your soil is dry in this area, give your shrub a deep watering at the base. Increase the watering in times of drought.


Fertilize your shrub at the beginning of every spring and in the middle of summer with an acidic fertilizer. Be sure to follow label instructions closely.
