Euonymus europaeus ‘Red Cascade’, commonly known as Red Cascade, is an eye-catching shrub or small tree. It’s a compact and trailing variety, renowned for its stunning display of vibrant red foliage and cascading growth habit.

The foliage of this variety is its standout feature with elliptical leaves that emerge green in spring and transform into a brilliant shade of red during autumn. The autumnal display is breath-taking as it become a cascade of vivid red hues, adding warmth and intensity to the landscape.

In late spring to early summer, Red Cascade produces inconspicuous greenish flowers that develop into small ornamental fruits. The fruit capsules are initially green and eventually mature into a pinkish red colour. These open to reveal bright orange seeds, which provide additional interest and attract birds to the garden.
