Great Plant Picks - The brilliant scarlet tones of Euonymus alatus 'Compactus' are hard to surpass in the autumn landscape. The leaves fall to reveal its roughly textured, twiggy stems. In summer this shrub has small, medium green leaves. The white flowers are inconspicuous, and the small red fruits vanish against the blaze of fall color. Compact burning bush is a Consistent performer in the garden and is adaptable and easy to grow. It is especially effective when placed in front of a darker background, where it creates a dramatic focal point in fall. Plants can also be grouped to create an informal hedge. This clone is more compact and has much smaller wings on the stems than the species. Burning bush develops the best fall color in full sun, but will tolerate open or light shade and still provide good color. This adaptable and useful shrub tolerates a variety of soil types from sandy well-drained soils to clay; avoid locations where water puddles in winter. Providing occasional water during dry weather keeps it looking its best and helps limit spider mite infestations which can be a problem if it is kept too dry.

Bushy and compact, makes an excellent hedge. Green foliage turns a brilliant scarlet red color in the fall.
