Euonymus • Spindle Tree • ニシキギ • 錦木 • nishiki-gi
There are many different euonymus plants in SJG, although the most common one, ‘burning bush’ (euonymus alatus, or winged spindle tree) is usually the only one pointed out. While the burning bush calls for attention because of the spectacularly red leaves color, other euonymus plants set colorful fruit in fall and are interesting to note, especially that some of them are evergreen.
We have three Euonymus myrianthus plants in our Garden: two of in Area L, and one in S; the one in S is the easiest to observe, as it sits fairly close to the upper N path, behind white blooming camellia sasanqua ‘Appledorn’ (both on the edge of Forest Area).
