Sorry, these are now sold out with the grower.

Features:  This large shrub's common name sounds like a reaction to its beautiful fall color and interesting seed pods. It is a great alternative to the more commonly sold Euonymus/Burning Bush species from Asia that can be invasive in woodlands.

Attracts a range of native bees and flies and hosts several moth species' caterpillars. Its fruits are of some interest to birds and small mammals.
