Bursting-heart..... a native woodland plant of Virginia (Euonymus americanus)

An unusual accent of foliage and flower
for lovers of native plant gardens
The autumn seedheads are a striking red & orange sight but are poisonous if ingested. Shown in this image are the small pastel blossoms that are a creamy mix of yellow, white & pink with a tinge of green. The little red ant enjoyed the nectar so much that it lingered for quite some time ;0)
