Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Leftwood On Sep 13, 2010, Leftwood from Saint Bonifacius, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

Of five Euonymus species that I grow, this one is the second to have fruit color in the fall (although there are other earlier ones). It has the truest red and pink colors I have seen on any euonymus (I live next to an arboretum with many species). Like many euonymus, if roots are severed, suckering can be induced. At 12 years old, the shrub is 3.5m tall now. While the fruits make nice cut decoration, when dried they lose most of their color.

This shrub provides a great late fall color show in the hedge row garden. Like its cousin the Bittersweet Euonymus (e. fortunei) the seed pod opens to reveal a shiny orange seed. But in addition the pod also has a great pink color. The combination of colors is striking.
