Euonymus alatus--Winged Burning Bush, Burning Bush

List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Burning bush has outstanding red fall color and corky wings on the twigs. The plant is shade tolerant but has inferior fall color and reduced density in shade. Plant in an area with sun or partial shade and any good garden soil. Burning bush transplants easily, grows slowly and may be sheared. The wings hold winter snow, outlining the branch structure. The plant has a height and spread of 8 to 10 feet. The fruit is ornamental if produced in quantity, but plants vary in the amount of fruit they produce.

The cultivar--'compactus'--dense, a dwarf about 7 feet tall--is probably used more than the species.
