Enjoy the visual attributes of compact winged spindle tree or ‘firebush’ - Euonymus alatus compactus – for your outdoor plot and marvel at four seasons of interest every year. In spring leaves and flowers appear in fresh greens and yellows. In summer the flowers keep coming and in autumn the flowers turn into rare red and orange berries which last through the winter on bare stems.

In autumn the leaves transform the tree into a living fire of red. Even when the leaves eventually fall to the ground in late autumn the stems show off curious corky ‘wings’ giving the shrub an interesting three-dimensional look.

This great plant gets to a manageable height for an average garden and with its compact growth habit- good news for small gardens. You can even grow Euonymus alatus compactus in large containers if you solely have a patio.
