  1. "Winged"....that's a word I've been looking for so long. We have a tree in the garden with these weird wooden "wing" structures, but I never knew what to call them, now I know :) Posted 3 years ago
    1. I had no idea what to call them either. I found the ID and info for this bush by googling “shrub with weird branches”! Posted 3 years ago
      1. Lol. When you see suggestions in Google as you type, you see it's common for people to literally type what they think, it works well quite often! Posted 3 years ago
        1. Yep, pretty funny how it actually works. Posted 3 years ago

''Euonymus alatus'', known variously as winged spindle, winged euonymus, or burning bush, is a species of flowering plant in the family Celastraceae, native to central and northern China, Japan, and Korea. The common name "burning bush" comes from the bright red fall color.
