Susan Hayward asked me to post this for her:
I just found Euonymus europeus growing in a vacant lot behind my house
that the whole neighborhood uses as an organic dump for yard waste. It
is a steep gully with a wetland at the bottom, clay soil, and lots of
invasives. This specimen is pretty mature, thick woody stem, somewhat
vining. Of course, the hot pink (in mid-November) seed capsule caught
my eye. Very pretty. What is it's status in Maine? Dwelley lists it
as escaped and uncommon. Invasive? I'd like to try it in my garden.
