      Its very similar to the one often sold as a variegated shrub or sometimes even a house plant.

        Our native euonymus, the spindle tree is deciduous, but the seed pods give it away.

          But the leaves look much glossier than the E. verrucosa images on google. Looks a good plant!

            Euonymus japonicus, the variegated plant is common, but it reverts quite often.
