This week features plants that show well on cloudy winter days! We even took these photos on a cloudy day to show off their glow.
Goshiki False Holly is a medium shrub for afternoon shade spots. It grows 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. The leaves emerge pink, then tune green with splashes of yellow. Goshiki prefers well drained soils so it will go well with azaleas, rhododendrons and astilbes. It works great in small areas and can be trimmed easily to keep in check.
Chollipo Euonymus is a sun loving yellow variegated plant that grows to 12 feet tall and 6 feet wide. It can be used where you need a vertical height and for darker spaces. Chollipo can handle part shade to full sun spots. Like the Goshiki it prefers well drained soil, to be regularly watered and fertilized. Also trim to keep it in bounds if needed.
