(Purple Leaf Wintercreeper) Euonymus 'Colorata' is a lush groundcover that is a hardy evergreen which will serve as a functional weed smothering plant or for erosion control on sloped areas. The clinging vines have shiny, leathery, dark green leaves that turn reddish-purple from late fall into winter. 'Colorata' makes for a great decorative filler when used in cut floral arrangements.
