Eastern Wahoo

Eastern Wahoo, Euonymus atropurpureus, is also sometimes known as Burning Bush, although at times E. alata shares that common name. Our species here lacks the winged, corky bark of E. alata. (I happen to have one of those in my yard so we can see that one too sometime.) Coincidentally, today's Botany Photo of the Day is of the latter mentioned species.

The fruit shots are a bit rough--I was having a bad flash day... :-)
