Although these shrubs (Euonymus alatus) are very common and even considered invasive in some areas, I love them anyway and have not found them to be invasive here. I have about a dozen of them, some several years old and quite large, with many planted above and below a pathway on a steep, sunny slope behind the house. I love the natural shape of these shrubs and do not prune mine at all except to keep them out of the pathways. In the summer, they are just nice green shrubs but in the fall, the bright red color is glorious and very long lasting. The photos show what they look like right now, and the leaves and color will often remain even after most of the other fall leaves are gone.
Click on these photos to enlarge and view the bright red fall color. The more sunshine these shrubs get, the more vibrant the color will be.
