Burning Bush?

Burning Bush?, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

Some people call this Burning Bush. (I wonder why.) It adds a lot of colour to our west meadow in November. It's real name is European Eunonymus or European Spindle Tree (Euonymus europaeus. [Fusain d'Europe in French]

Actually, in November of 2007 it did not have too much colour. I suspect it was because of heavy insect damage in the spring and a very dry summer. This year it is back to normal.
