|In temperate climates, these deciduous or evergreen shrubs, small trees, ground covers or evergreen climbing vines are valued for their foliage and form. Use larger types as landscape plants, and prune to shape and control growth. Fruits are colorful, with pink, red, orange or yellow hulls. Their orange seeds attract birds. Flowers are inconspicuous. All grow in most soils. Some evergreens tolerate city and coastal conditions and are hardy in cold and hot climates. Water moderately until established. Prune to shape at any time.
Seen climbing trees, chimneys, and rock walls, this plant's aerial rootlets attach themselves to anything they touch. Once established, Wintercreeper Euonymus tolerates coastal wind and salt spray, heat, poor soils, shade, and drought. The leaves are dark green with serrated edges.
