Euonymus alatus - Winged Euonymus

This Euonymus alatus was salvaged from our yard where it was a neglected landscape shrub.

The tree responded very nicely to pot culture and developed well ramified branches in several years. It even blooms and sets fruit most years. The fruit is a hanging orange berry.

It must be repotted yearly as the fine hair roots will fill all the spaces in the soil and compact it severely.

The plant has had no insect pests and is easy to wire on new wood. Older wood is quite stiff and risky to wire.

The picture was taken in 1995 and the tree was sold to a friend in Montana who now cares for it.

The tree is 13 inches tall and 2 inches in trunk diameter.
