Burning Bush, Winged (Tree Form)


Description: The Burning Bush Tree is a unique, cork barked, specimen plant with the magnificent red fall foliage. In fall the brilliant deep dark red leaves of this Burning Bush Tree Form almost burn with color. Though tolerant of shade, the Tree Form Burning Bush requires full sun to produce the most vibrant fall colors that these plants are known for. This Euonymus transplants easily and the tops may be sheared for an even more compact plant. The corky wings on the twigs hold winter snow, outlining the branch structure making this an interesting plant in the winter.
