Size at Maturity
|Tree Height||Tree Spread|
It's generally a dense, low-branched, multi-stemmed small tree growing up to 20ft tall and wide and which can take on a rather ragged appearance with age. The pink fruits are especially attractive as they split open to reveal bright orange or red seeds within.
Eastern Wahoo (Euonymus atropurpureus) is native to the Midwest US including eastern Nebraska. Though it’s generally considered a large-growing shrub, it can reach the size of a small tree. Wahoo also has attractive pink fruits in the fall and heavily-loaded specimens can appear to be covered in pink popcorn.
