Description

Euonymus (Burning Bush)    yoo-ON-i-muhs

Noted for it’s fluorescent fall foliage and very ornamental berries, Euonymus alatus (Burning Bush) is a large, spreading, deciduous shrub of great popularity.  In late Spring to early Summer, a profusion of tiny, non-showy greenish flowers appear before being replaced by purplish-red fruits that mature during the Fall. At this time, each fruit capsule splits open to reveal orange-coated seeds which hang on far into Winter. The foliage of elliptic, green leaves turns an impressive scarlet red in the Fall before shedding to the ground, revealing conspicuous corky wings that project from the twigs.
