02 Mar Euonymus alatus ‘Compactus’
Although the name suggests this shrub is small it most certainly is not in any way, shape or form. Dwarfed winged burning bushes commonly get overlooked at nurseries because they are a simple green bush in the summer. Where they shine is in the fall when their leaves turn to a vibrant, glowing red. Even the small pink/orange berries clusters that form hold interest through most of the winter. Don’t pass this shrub up!
