It could be that it is an relatively unknown Euonymus species but it shows great resemblance to Euonymus cornutus var. quinquecornutus.

Here are two pictures of a 4 or 5 year old Euonymus cornutus var quinquecornutus which was propagated by seed. I have also a grafted form of this small Euonymus but I do not have any pictures of it.

GardenPrince,

Very cool Euonymus. :o  And I see that it is very hard to get seed from it! (Not!)  ;D  That is an impressive cover..... it must pretty much have every flower set seed?  Such a wonderful addition to a plant, to get a period where the seed is it's attraction, then to have leaves, autumn colour, branches etc at other times of year.  Very, very cool. 8)
Cheers.

Min winter temp -8 or -9C. Max summer temp 40C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.

What struck me was that the plant is flowering well from a young age.

Always a great advantage at my not-so-young age. :)

If I may go back to my post about an ID for some tubers, and their buyer's assertion that they were dahlias, not new potatoes, these have now sent up a little top growth and they ARE potatoes, but they weren't new ones, but the old tubers from which the new ones would grow and I guess that's how they got mixed in with the new ones. I have the guy's contact details so will email him and send a picture as well. At the time he said he had been a President of the NZ Dahlia Soc so obviously he doesn't know his dahlias quite as well as he thought he did. :o

I bought the simple species a few years ago and have also been very disappointed but Olga's remark about "sun and poor soil" explains all. A case of wrong plant, wrong place for me.
