Bursting Heart Burning Bush
The Bursting Heart Burning bush, Euonymus americana 'Bursting Heart', is a unique shrub. In the spring and summer this shrub quietly takes the back seat to other seasonal color. However, in early fall, it draws curious looks with its unique display of fruit. Bumpy, raspberry-red pods hang on the ends of stems and split open to reveal small, smooth, red seeds.
If you'll plant this shrub with some room to grow, it will delight you with its fullness and profusion of fall "hearts." The lower limbs can be removed up to 2' or so and ground covers (foam flower, green and gold, ginger, etc.) planted to carpet the ground beneath. Grows 4-6'. Native.
