EUONYMUS alatus ‘Compactus’

Dwarf Burning Bush –

0457Dwarf burning bush is a somewhat compact deciduous shrub that originates from China, Japan and Korea. This popular landscape plant has a spreading habit, compound leaves of dark green and prominent corky ‘wings’ along its stems. But, it is best known for its fall foliage of glowing vibrant red, thus the name burning bush.

Late in the season it becomes covered with four-lobed capsules that split open to reveal orange-red seeds. These are relished by birds and disseminated everywhere. These seeds germinate readily and grow quickly causing this plant to be invasive in natural environments across North America.

Burning bush is shade tolerant, but grows best in sites with full sun and well drained, fertile soil.
