Step into the world of Euonymus fortunei 'Gracilis', a compact and graceful shrub renowned for its delicate beauty and robust nature. Often called the "slender spindle," this variety charms with its finely textured foliage, which forms a dense, bushy mound that is as elegant as it is hardy.

The small, glossy leaves of 'Gracilis' are a deep green, creating a lush backdrop that contrasts beautifully with brighter flowers or lighter greens in the garden. In the autumn and winter months, the foliage can take on a subtle bronze hue, adding seasonal interest and warmth to the landscape.

Perfect for small gardens or as part of a foundation planting, 'Gracilis' fits beautifully into various landscape designs. Its modest size and tidy growth habit make it an ideal choice for borders, low hedges, or as a structured element in container gardens. Despite its delicate appearance, this shrub is surprisingly durable, resisting common pests and diseases and thriving in a range of soil types and conditions, from full sun to partial shade.

Euonymus fortunei 'Gracilis' not only offers year-round visual appeal with its evergreen foliage but also serves as a reliable and low-maintenance option for both novice and experienced gardeners. Let 'Gracilis' bring its unique blend of simplicity, elegance, and resilience to your garden, enhancing the beauty and diversity of your outdoor space.

A show-stopping, variegated leathery rich evergreen shrub, Euonymus fortunei 'Gracilis' delivers a stunning variegated backdrop for any landscape. Its fast growth rate offers quick coverage (and erosion control) of any area in a variety of environmental conditions including slopes, a wide pH range, poor soils, and anything from dense shade to full sun.

The deep green shiny, egg-shaped leaves are 1 to 2 1/2 inch long. Some select Gracilis because of her willingness to tolerate moderate amounts of salt and foot traffic, though the latter is not encouraged.

Things To Note
Gracilis is invasive and should be planted in contained areas or spaces where you don't mind her taking over.

General information about Euonymus fortunei (Wintercreeper):
If you want something similar to Ivy, but different, this plant will be a perfect fit for you. Euonymus fortunei, often referred to as Wintercreeper or even Fortune’s Spindle, is an elegant, understated woody evergreen vine native to China, Korea, and Japan.

It is excellent for slopes and erosion control. Stems root along nodes, spreading indefinitely as a sprawling, tangled, bushy carpet somewhat similar in appearance to Vinca from a distance. Similar to ivy, using small rootlets on stems to climb, Wintercreeper reaches heights up to 65 feet in her attempts to gain more sunlight.

Its approach to climbing is not the only character trait Wintercreeper shares with Ivy. Both ivy and Wintercreeper have a sterile, juvenile, non-flowering, climbing, (or creeping) phase. After growing tall enough to reach the crowns of trees, Wintercreeper develops into an adult. This flowering phase does not have climbing rootlets. The (1 to 2 1/2 inch long and 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch broad) leaves are arranged in opposite pairs, elliptic to elliptic-ovate, with a finely serrated margin.

The flowers are inconspicuous (1/8 inch in diameter), with four small greenish-yellow petals, and the fruit, if any, are four-lobed, pale green pod-like berries. Inside each lobe is a single fleshy-coated orange seed. In the end, the rich emerald to bright green foliage is the real show stopper offering the benefit of climbing for rock walls, topiaries, arbors and more.

Gardener Tips
Euonymus fortunei responds beautifully to an early spring pruning, some elect to mow it on a high setting to keep a tidy appearance.
