    Features

    Clean, crisp, year-round color.

    White Album® euonymus is an improved form of the always-popular 'Emerald Gaiety' with superior leaf spot resistance and a consistent growing habit. Landscapers and gardeners will appreciate the bright leaves that set it apart from older varieties. The stable variegation has a large, cream-colored border around the perimeter of the large evergreen leaves. Very nice for brightening up shady areas!

    Like most variegated plants, occasional reversions to the original green form may occur. These should be pruned out as needed.

    • I hope this plant is as disease resistant as it is promoted as being, because I have gone all in! After having three plants for a year that stood up well to the abuse of having multiple dogs in our household, I bought an additional twelve ‘White Album’ this year. Dog urine and traffic has killed many of the evergreen shrubs and trees that I have planted over the years, but not these! So nice to have a reliable plant to provide year-round structure to a garden. Also, the variegation is really pretty and the plant is not a wild spreader like some wintercreeper.
