This particular tree was started in the late 1980s due to over-ordering on a landscaping project. It is not commonly used for bonsai material.
Euonymus alatus, known variously as winged spindle, winged euonymus, or burning bush originates from woodland and thickets in China and Japan. The tree grows to 20 ft (6 m) tall, often wider than tall. The stems are notable for their four corky ridges or “wings.” The word alatus is Latin for “winged,” in reference to the winged branches.
In the zones of 4 to 8, the species is hardy and It is most striking in the fall when the leaves turn bright red.
