A type of Euonymus.

It is definitely a member of the Bittersweet family (Celastraceae). It appears to be one of the deciduous members of the genus Euonymus. It is not American Strawberry Bush (Euonymus americanus). It could be the exotic Winged Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus) or the native Eastern Burning Bush (Euonymus atropurpureus).

Hi I grow Euonymus alatus and there aren't any thorns on this plant. There are some long sharp points on "E.hamiltonianus" subsp.sieboldianus syn. e. yedoensis. This grows in z6-8 and 20ft. tall and wide, but I think the flower colour may vary.
I find it rather interesting you call E alatus "exotic" as it's growen throught the city and I live in z3b. I always think of exotic as more a tropical.

I am a newbie gardener and haven't many seeds. I would love to grow this on my landscape! Could you spare some seeds? I have a few you could email me to get a list of, however some were passed down to me from a year and two years ago. I do mave new echinicea (sp?)Thank you so much!

Member of the Euonymous family -- related to Eastern Wahoo. I believe somewhere in my memory there is a horticultural variety cultivated for even showier fruits than the native Eastern Wahoo, but I can't remember...
