Originally from Japan, the Euonymus Alatus Ciliatodentatus or Pink Dwarf Spindle Bush is a compact shrub, bushy habit, small in size (0.60 m high for a spread of 0.60 m in adulthood) that is rarely found in nurseries. He is especially wanted to make Komayumi bonsai. It is a variety of decorative Spindle Bush, not only with its bright pink autumn foliage, but also with its fruits.
Narrower and more graceful than those of the typical variety, the leaves of the Pink Dwarf Spindle Bush are elliptic in shape and finely toothed. Dark green in summer, they are beautifully tinged with red turning bright pink in autumn. In May / June, small white flowers, clustered, hatch. They seem insignificant. Then globular capsules of a purple red, almost round, are formed. When they reach maturity, they open and reveal bright orange arils that enclose the seeds.
Euonymus Alatus Ciliatodentatus groeit in neutrale grond en ondersteunt zelfs kalksteen. It is resistant to temperatures down to -20 ° C. In a sunny location or in partial shade.
You can plant the Pink Dwarf Spindle Bush in isolated, shrubbery or tray. But in the autumn, it will be the most effect in a rock garden or in a Japanese garden.
