Euonymus tingens is an evergreen shrub or small tree eventually up to 20 or 25 ft high, devoid of down in all its parts; of bushy habit; young shoots angled; young bark grey. Leaves narrowly oval to lanceolate, tapered towards both ends, finely toothed; 112 to 3 in. long, 58 to 114 in. wide; dark glossy green, pale beneath; stalk 14 in. or less long. Flowers 12 in. wide, creamy-white marbled or veined with deep purple, produced in May and June in once- or twice-branched cymes 1 to 112 in. wide. Fruit 12 to 58 in. wide, four- or five-angled, described as flesh-coloured; seed aril scarlet.

Native of the Himalaya, where it is found up to 10,000 ft altitude, also of Yunnan and Szechwan, China. Originally described by Wallich in 1824, it was cultivated by Jacksons of Kingston, Surrey, in the middle of last century, having probably been introduced by Joseph Hooker from India between 1847 and 1851. Forrest collected it several times in W. China.  Outside of botanic collections this very lovely evergreen species is inexplicably rare.
