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.

- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
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!Foliage InterestWinter Interest
