Makes a slow growing medium sized shrub, curious corky winged bark on the branches. Fantastic autumn foliage effect of crimson red, made even more exciting when the reddish purple fruits split open to reveal orange seeds.
This dense, compact form of E. alatus is best known for its stunning autumn colour. Further interest provided by the red-purple fruits which split to reveal bright orange seeds. A good choice for a low hedge.
A very useful plant for tough situations, long evergreen traing stems which can used successfully used as either groundcover or trained up walls etc. The main claim to fame though for Euonymus Coloratus is the way the mid green leaves of summer turn slowly to a glorious plum purple, ruby red by depth of winter, quite stunning.
