A native deciduous shrub among the Euonymus genus and noted for its very ornamental fruits and attractive fall color commonly called the American Strawberry bush, a low maintenance deciduous suckering shrub native to the southeastern and southern states. Its common name derives from the showy warty capsules that split open to reveal red-orange seeds in the fall. Spring flowers are small and non-showy but fall leaf color is a showy red. It has a sprawling form when young but matures to a more upright growth pattern.

Tolerates a wide variety of soils including both drought and wet soils.  Best use for woodland naturalized areas and a great, native, highly beneficial alternative to Euonymus alatus.
