Hi - I just bought an Emerald & Gold Euonymus at Sprawlmart. The salesperson said it did not turn pink or red. It certainly does not have any tinge of pink or red now. In researching I did. Does anyone know if the E&GE turns pink or red in cold....cold in my area is into low to mid teens....weather?

Thanks for any experiences you have with this colorful shrub.

Yes, in winter and early spring while the soil is very cold the leaf margins will have a red or pink tinge to it. In warm soil (or pot grown in greenhouses) the leaves are green/white varigated and no red/pink coloration at all. I think it comes out only when the roots are very cold.

The entire leaf will not turn red, but the leaf margin will have a pink or red glow to it.

This spring has been quite funny for our E&GE because they are green/white one day and next day turn pinkish again as temperature drops. In a few days I expect them to be fully green/white.
