Euonymus alatus 'Little Moses' (Burning Bush)
Commonly called burning bush, is a dense, mounded, spreading, flat-topped, multi-stemmed shrub that is particularly noted for its fiery red fall foliage color.
Over-time has become an extremely popular shrub for homes, commercial properties and along highways. Fall color can be spectacular. Small, yellowish-green flowers appear in May but are not showy. Small fruits (1/3” red capsules) ripen in fall. Seeds are attractive to certain birds who eat and distribute them. Corky-winged stems are more noticeable in winter after leaf drop.
