Euonymus is a deciduous shrub from Celastraceae family native to Asia, and the Alatus Species is known also as Burning Bush or Winged Euonymus - as reference to their winged branches with longitudinal cork cambium. The leaves are growing with a dark green color in summer which is changing in autumn in an attractive bright red(burning bush) if is kept in sunny places or faded red if is kept in shady sites.
