Plant Profile: Euonymus alatus ‘Compacta’

Common? Maybe. Still, there’s no denying that this is a showy plant in the fall. Just keep in mind that it wants to get to be a ten foot by ten foot plant. Sure,  you can keep it whacked back into a pitiful little three foot cube, but that’s not going to give you the best bang for your buck. Plant one- or even better, several- somewhere that they can fill out and anchor a space, and you’ll have a happy plant.
