Euonymus lanceifolius

Narrow-leaf Spindletree

Plant Type:

SHRUBS

Euonymus lanceifolius (syn. Euonymus hamiltonianus var. lanceifolius ?) Narrow-leaf Spindletree is another large shrub or small tree adorned with dangling bright pink seed capsules in autumn. Let's hear it for autumn interest! White late spring flowers give way to the amazingly opulent fall display that will stop you dead in your tracks. The four-sided seed pods dangling in clusters each split open to display a bright red berry. Russell Stafford and I collected seed from this worthy species, clearly a close relative of E. bungeanus, at Arnold Arboretum. The large shrub was showing off a mind-boggling display in November. Fall foliage color can be pink to very pale yellow. Wow! Old wood becomes light pewter and deeply fissured – not bad in winter. Cutting grown.
