Euonymus Europaeus Red Cascade
A very hardy shrub.
Red cascade is a simply stunning shrub that is very under used, stunning fruit and autumn colour.
This large shrub, a native of European hedgerows, has very hard dense wood traditionally used for making spindles and other small implements.
It is an attractive tree in the autumn when the foliage assume vivid tints.
These are brightest in full sun although plants grow reasonably well in shade.
The summer flowers are insignificant but they result in attractive rosy-pink fruits which split open to form four winged lobes with a bright orange seed at the centre. 'Red Cascade' almost becomes a weeping tree under the weight of fruit.
It is tolerant of a wide range of soils and conditions and has won the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Fully hardy: stands a temperature down to -15°C
Water regularly during the first year after planting and remove any dead and damaged stems in late autumn.
Regular pruning isn’t normally required
