An unusual garden plant, Euonymus planipes is native to Korea, Northern Japan, Sakhalin Island, Eastern Siberia and has masses of showy, bright purplish-scarlet fruit in autumn. These fruit weep gracefully from the branches and split open to reveal bright orange seed.

Once established, the large, lush green leaves also have excellent autumn colour, turning deep red or plum purple before falling. Euonymus planipes is also know for its distinctive, long, pointed mahogany coloured buds in spring before the leaves emerge. An unusual, showy garden plant with very ornamental fruit!
