Euonymus Alata Compacta

Compact Burning Bush makes a stunning deciduous hedge. New leaves are bright chartreuse, turning darker green with age, and finally the real show of fiery red foliage in the Fall.
Inconspicuous creamy green flowers appear in the Summer, leading to small, showy, bright red fruits.
Best Fall color when planted in the full sun, but is very location tolerant.
Prefers well drained, alkaline soils, but is very tolerant here, too.
Relatively drought tolerant once established, but happier with regular water.
Pollinator friendly & wildlife resistant once established.
