Euonymus Unforgettable Fire® Description
Be the brightest house on the block every autumn with Unforgettable Fire burning bush (Euonymus alatus)! This improved Proven Winners ColorChoice selection has denser branching than other types. That means that it naturally grows as a fuller shrub to provide coverage and more of that dazzling bright red display. We particularly love this variety for privacy hedges and creating garden rooms, but it would make a stunning specimen or centerpiece to a flower or garden bed.
