DWARF BURNING BUSH     Euonymus nanus 'Turkestanicus'

This delightful little shrub is named for its fall foliage colour. Because of its somewhat sprawling habit, it is best used as a background plant in a setting where its fall color will be appreciated.

Shrub: Height 60cm (2ft).

Foliage: Dark green; linear; and semi-evergreen.

Flowers: Not significant although the colourful fruit is often mistaken for the flowers.

Fruit: Bright red seeds are born in half inch clear pink capsules that resemble miniature lanterns. These will always be a topic of conversation is the plants are located close to a seating area.

Fall Colour: Outstanding. Pink to deep red.

Comments: 'Turkestanicus' is much tidier that the species burning bush.
