Euonymus alatus, the winged spindle or burning bush, is a species of flowering plant belonging to the Celastraceae family. It is a deciduous shrub native to East Asia, China, Japan and Korea that reaches 2.5 meters in height, often wider than it is tall. The leaves are 2-7 cm long by 1-4 cm wide, ovate-elliptic with a sharp tip. The flowers are greenish and remain for a long period. The fruit is red that includes a pink capsule with four lobes. It is called “burning bush” because of the bright red color of its fruit. It is a common ornamental plant in parks and gardens due to the beauty of its colors in autumn. The most common style is the informal upright (Moyogi) although it fits many others.
