A shrub known for its superb red autumn colour, Euonymus alatus is a slow growing and also has distinctive corky 'wings' on its branchlets. The leaves are bright green and turn spectacular shades of crimson-scarlet in autumn and under favourable conditions can last on the plant for several weeks before falling.

Small numbers of vivid purplish-red fruit appear on the branches when mature. Superb medium sized shrub for creating a vivid display of autumn colour in your garden!
