Found this while clearing some brush. Shady area, growing among privit and whatnot, under oak trees. Presently 5ft high non-bushy plant. Is so pretty I carefully cut everything around it and tied it to a trellis I stuck in the ground with it – to hold it up because it was flopping over.

    thanx for the ID. We bought this old farm land 17 years ago and I’m always finding little surprises like this. On the note by Jake12121212, yes our resident deer graze all over the land and it does look like the leaves have been snipped off, a sign of munching deer. There is a small clump of 6-8 plants in this one spot with the pods (about 20) only on the largest one. Very interesting, I’ll have to research and also try my hand at germinating the seeds. These are so pretty!!!

    Whoa! I just read that Euonymous americanus is a deciduous shrub. What I have is evergreen (green the year round). I evidently have some other Euonymous.

    I have been seeing the fruit of this plant pictured on Walter Reeve’s site a lot recently. I have had my Euonymous americanus for 30 plus years and only got the pretty green foliage but the past two winters the deer have crawled under my deck and ate all the leaves off the bush/vine. Each autumn since the plant has set on these pretty fruit capsules. “Deer love to feed on Euonymus. So if youÕre trying to dissuade these four-legged munchers from foraging through your yard, it may not be the plant for your garden.” …… but then again maybe the stress is what this plant needs to set fruit.
