Euonymus oxyphyllus

The Autumn Garden is decorated with gaudy autumn fruits
This Korean spindleberry produces some of the gaudiest of autumn berries when the waxy, pink seed cases split to reveal the orange, fleshy seeds the colour of Heinz tomato soup! Each bauble is suspended from a slender, wiry, cerise thread. which together garland this low-growing, spreading shrub. The foliage follows this intense lead and colours a livid, deep pink.
