Euonymus ‘Scarlet Wonder’ Spindle

Description: A medium-sized, spreading, deciduous shrub with a bushy habit. Deep green leaves clothe the corky stems in summer. This plant really comes into its own in autumn and winter, when its dark green leaves turn blazing scarlet. Small summer flowers are followed by gorgeous, orange-pink, winged fruit which remain long after the leaves have fallen.

History: Originated from Asia.

Euonymus Growing Tips: These deciduous and evergreen trees will thrive in almost any soil incuding chalk as long as it's well-drained. Plant in full sun or partial shade.
