POTD: Winter Creeper

Posted on

In the family of Celastraceae and the species of Euonymus Fortunei, I believe this may be a Coloratus. Also called the Spindle or Fortune’s Spindle, it is named for Scottish botantist Robert Fortune. It is native to East Asia and has become invasive here in the US. It can kill a tree, despite being very pretty. ~Vic
