Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus)

Zone Shelburne VT 05482 | marthapolliwog added on August 27, 2017 | Answered

Why would any knowledgeable person plant this extraordinarily invasive species? I grew up in Northwestern Connecticut (the Berkshires) and our 2 Burning Bush shrubs not only thrived but reproduced abundantly; it was as incredibly invasive. Who would a put up with this marauder when there are so many appealing shrubs that are just as easy to grow?

In many areas, Burning Bush is not invasive and is a wonderful plant in the landscape.

Thanks for your thoughtful response. So you have my permission to plant Euonymus alatus if you want - I'll continue to hate it!
