Variegated Leaves: Pictures of Bi-Colored Plants

Variegated Leaves: Pictures of Bi-Colored Plants

There are several variegated euonymus shrubs, of which 'Moonshadow' euonymus is one ...

'Emerald Gaiety,' with its white and green variegation, is another. Moonshadow euonymus (Euonymus fortunei 'Moonshadow') has green and gold leaves, with the gold in the center and the green on the margins. As such, I tend to think of the coloration of this small evergreen shrub as an Emerald 'n' Gold euonymus (yet another choice if you desire bicolored leaves) "turned inside ... out"; on the latter, it is the gold that is on the edges of the leaves.

As you can see in this picture of Moonshadow euonymus, though, is not consistent (nor is it consistent in Emerald 'n' Gold euonymus, for that matter). The gold is strongest on the newest leaves, while it tends to fade to a creamy color on the older ones. Still, the creamy color is attractive in its own right; Moonshadow euonymus makes a better groundcover than Emerald 'n' Gold, as it tends to stay shorter and spread out more horizontally.

The outer branches bear a creamy yellow color, giving the overall plant a brighter appearance (as compared to Emerald 'n' Gold, whose outer branches are green). Both plants pick up a pink tinge when cold weather arrives, which boosts their value for winter interest.

Here's another comparison with Emerald 'n' Gold: in my experience, fewer of Moonshadow euonymus' new branches exhibit reversion (that is, they do not revert back to the plain green color of their parentage).

Of course, if you're a fan of classic rock, any mention of this ground cover's name will immediately call to mind the old Cat Stevens song, Moonshadow .
