Suntory Texas Summer Double

Wintercreeper Blondy® offers a mound of bright yellow foliage, thinly banded in green, even in the dead of winter. Unlike most variegated wintercreepers, Blondy is predominantly yellow with just an edge of green to set off the vibrant color. At 18-24 inches tall, it is suitable for the front of a shrub border, mixed in a perennial bed, or as filler in a container. Blondy will give your plantings a shot of color, even over the winter months. It will thrive in just about any garden soil in sun or part shade. Like most in its family, it does not like wet, soggy soil. If any green leaved branches sprout, just prune them out back to the trunk to keep the yellow foliage prominent. Euonymus Blondy® is best grown in USDA Zones 5-8.

Plus she used an inexpensive trellis for support. To learn more, click here .
