Coloratus Euonymus is a dense trailing evergreen perennial that creates a bushy mat of glossy dark green leaves that turn purple in fall and winter.  Inconspicuous white flowers are sparse if even present when grown as a groundcover, but more abundant if allowed to climb.  Grows best in moist, well-drained soils.  Can be an aggressive spreader, especially if allowed to climb.
