Euonymus coloratus, or 'Purple Winter Creeper', is a very hardy and vigorous groundcover. The dark green foliage turns to an attractive purple-red color during winter. This plant will grow well in either full sun or shade, making it one of the most versatile groundcovers. It is not picky about soil and is very heat and drought tolerant.

We plant Purple Winter Creeper on slopes, as a groundcover under the canopies of large trees, and under decks. Basically, we like to use this tough groundcover where we think nothing much else will grow. Aerial roots along the stems will allow it to climb poutous surfaces.
