euonymus alatus compactus


This seems to be a sup species or wild adaptation, but these plants differ from Burning Bush (euonymus alatus) in the way thier roots produce suckers that travel underground starting a new grove.


Grows right through the cracks in the granite and invades new areas, also making it impossible to rip out!


Very difficult to rip out, so many shoots, with heavy deep roots that break off in the granite.
