Burning Bush - Euonymus alatus
Leaves of the Burning Bush Plant are poisonous. However, the plant exhibits beautiful red and dark orange colors, especially during the fall season. This is considered one of the most unwanted plants in North America because it spreads at a rapid rate and because of the poison aspects of its leaves. There are compact versions of the bush as well as those that can grow up to 15 feet in height. The plant's soft strips create the body of the bush throughout the year until the flowers bloom in the fall. There are also berries on the plant when the flowers are in bloom.
The Burning Bush is frequently seen in urban and suburban settings, but it fares very well in places like industrial complexes and commercial sites. There are two main types of plants in this category, a full-size version, and a little version. The winged species has a corky stem. This shrub is usually green with two leaves protruding from the stem at each point along the twig. It has yellow flowers in a four-leaf pattern that grow with bright orange seeds hanging from them in the fall.
During the first two weeks of autumn, the Burning Bush turns a fiery red color that fades to a thick violet or ruddy pink. The color change is one of the reasons it is such a popular choice for commercial and residential properties alike. The bush turns a stunning red color in the fall if planted in full sun. Although this plant grows slowly, it does reproduce well. Many bird species love to eat the seeds of the Burning Bush. Offspring can easily be trimmed, sprayed, dug up, or transplanted if desired. It can thrive in any number of soil types from loose, rocky, and sandy to fertile, acidic, alkaline and non-fertile grounds. Many people do not know that the traditional shape of the Burning Bush is a vase instead of round or boxed because they are often trimmed in a more conventional design to fit it with landscapes and gardens.
