Euonymus americana is a loosely branched, multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub, growing 4-6’ high with a 4-6’ spread. Young plants tend to be slightly sprawling, growing more erect with maturity.
In late summer to early fall, their red fruits open to reveal orange berries. Then the leaves turn bright orange-red. Birds will feed on the berries once visible.
Without pruning, this species is an airy, open shrub. It occurs in deciduous woods; low, sandy thickets and swamps. Use it in a hedgerow, border, rain garden, or natural garden setting. Birds may use it for nesting if pruned to become more dense.
Prefers part shade, but can grow in full sun or full shade. Tolerant of clay soils as well as black walnut juglans. Stop in soon, limited quantity available! Our potted plants are already 3+ feet tall, and bearing fruit!
