Yes it has a wonderful dark red color.... tho the leaves have not yet reduced as much as I would like so they still curl quite a bit ... this is normal however as I have seen it on several examples...Ang3, I bet that has beautiful color in the fall.
Euonymus commonly only have one major growth push per year.... and if you want to get good coverage of wounds I would wait until mid spring.... this will give the plant some time to heal the wound as well as throw some new growth. I have a small one that I have been working on for a few years (it will never be show worthy but its a fun project tree) and it has just started to produce the bright orange fruit that make the winter viewing of the tree so exciting.
I find the "show worthy" thing to be a moot point for me. The only worth a Bonsai has for me is if I find it pleasing to work with or to look at, thats as far as I find it needs to go to keep me happy, but to each his own. By the way I like your burning bush, the trunk makes it look very old and it reminds me of many large old gnarled trees I see in the midwest, I would love to see it all leafed out.
That is a great photo. thank you. I will start working on mine. I was given 6 plants that were grown from seed. Several have a 3/4" maine trunk and I will cut them back this winter in hopes of them back budding in the spring.
I had did some pruning last year late fall and one tree in this forest died so now i prune in early summer
