Hearts A Bustin'

This is a native flower that grows in NC called  "hearts a-bustin'"  It is a Euonymus americanus  and gets about 6 feet tall.  The color of the flower is spectacularly vibrant in autumn.  The deer browse it very heavily and so I'm glad we have several robust clusters of it inside our deer fence, I hardly ever see it blooming in the woods anymore.

We've got some growing next to this beauty berry and the combo of colors is brilliant.
