A vigorous native shrub, Euonymus europaeus has attractive autumn tints and bright pink fruit which split to reveal glowing orange seeds. The leaves are dark green in the summer months and turn rich orange and red in October.

Euonymus europaeus will pollinate Euonymus europaeus ''Red Cascade' and vice versa, meaning much better displays of colourful berries in late summer or autumn if planted near each other. Several can be planted together in the same hole to improve pollination.

Euonymus europaeus is ideal for planting as an unusual backdrop shrub in flowering borders and makes a superb woodland plant. 

  • Position: Full sun or partial shade.
  • Soil: Any fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Flowering Period:May - June.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate to vigorous.
  • Habit: Large branching shrub or eventually very small vase-shaped tree.

  • Notes: The fruit and buds of this plant can be toxic and should not be eaten. This plant will produce much better displays of fruit when planted near and pollinated by another Euonymus europaeus.
