European spindle (Euonymus europaeus) 歐衛矛
It is a hardy deciduous shrub or small tree. Pale yellow near white flowers in late spring and beautiful red fruit in fall with bright orange seeds. The twigs in fall with fruit and yellow fall colour in leaves are quite showy, good for cut flower. It tolerants wide range of soil condition. Prefer full sun to partial shade location. Mature size is 8′-10′ (H). But it is easy to prune to desire size. Easy to propagate by seeds or cuttings. USDA Zones:5-8. Toxic if ingested.
It thrives when growing in good soil and light, it could be invasive. It is better to control the seeds before they are mature. If you have good or normal soil I do not recommend to plant this. But for some poor soil condition this could be the right choice.
