This Burning Bush was a gift from one of Brittainy's friends a couple of years ago. In the fall the green leaves turn a bright red!!
MASSACHUSETTS has banned this bush from being sold.
The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources has announced that as of January 1st, 2006, it will begin to prohibit the sale and importation of 140 species of plants and bushes that it has identified as being "invasive" or "noxious."
Among the outlawed flora is the ubiquitous "Burning Bush" (Euonymus alata), a source of dramatic fall color in many local gardens (including mine!). It can be sold until July 1, 2006, so if you have been thinking of adding this fiery feature to your landscape, do it this spring, while you can still find specimens in local nurseries.
And don't worry, the state has no intention of forming local posses to remove the banned plants, trees, and shrubs that are ensconced on private property! from http://countryhomecourier.blogspot.com/
Some of my neighbors have HUGE bushes that are simply gorgeous this time of year. I really am looking forward to the time when mine is just as big and just as lovely!
