My sister has one in her yard, it give a beautiful pop of red colour.
They’re so beautiful at this time of year! Thanks for commenting. 🙂
Burning bush seems like a very fitting name. Love the vibrant display of red colours.
It’s definitely the right name as it is such a bright, fiery red! With working north of 60 I haven’t had much opportunity to enjoy autumn colours over the last few years, so this has been a great experience.
Love the burning bush colours. Lots of reds, oranges and yellows in Vancouver right now, prolonging our fall. Happy Sunday Lynette. Allan
It has been wonderful for me because I’m usually working north of 60 at this time of year. I’m heading back for my last northern winter at the end of the week though, so I have to enjoy the colours now!
I really like this shrub. Unfortunately, the very cold winter last year killed mine. Sure look great this time of year, don’t they?
I’m sorry to hear that, Anneli. It’s always sad to lose a favourite. The colour is so exceptional; just gorgeous!
Yes, I hated to lose it. I also like the way the branches had a unique squared off shape (lengthwise, that is).
Have you been able to start a new one?
No, I didn’t, but one of these days, maybe in the spring, I’ll get a new one.
Wow that’s stunning. What a colour, even rivals the maples
They do! The only trees/bushes that are redder right now are the Japanese maples. Some of them can be such an amazingly intense colour; here, at least.
Love that fiery red color! Happy Sunday.
Right? That autumn red is so fantastic! Cheers.
I always say that orange trees and red bushes with the sun on the look like a burning bush. I didn’t know that’s what the bush was called! Thanks for the lesson. 🙂
P.S. I won’t even begin to try and pronounce the literal name.
Agreed – I’ll leave that name to the experts! I love that bright red colour; we have such a gorgeous display going on right now. Autumn is so great!
The euonymus is a fabulous bush! Not just that fall blaze of colour, but the wonderful corky bark texture and graceful shape, so it’s as beautiful all winter as it is in summer.
Yes, and I like the shape of the leaves; they look so graceful. It’s definitely beautiful throughout the year.
Year by year, the corky texture of the bark becomes more prominent — summertime, it’s an OK shrub, fall it’s a blaze of colour, but I love it best bare in winter, when its lines & textures turn it into a sculpture
You have an excellent eye for art!
Never knew the name – thanks! I have one in my yard. ♥
You’re welcome. 🙂 Penticton has quite a few of these round and about. They are really beautiful year-round, but that glorious autumn colour is such a feast for the eyes!
I agree, they turn a glorious red♥
