Growing Strawberry Bush

I have fallen in love with a plant called Strawberry bush growing in my neighbor’s yard. The reddish-orange fruit lasts through late winter. Can you help me give it a botanical name and tell me how to propagate it?

This fall beauty is a relative of burning bush. It is native to the woodlands of New York south to Florida and west to Texas. Its distinctive fruit capsule gave it the common names of strawberry-bush and hearts-a-bursting. Also known as American euonymus (Euonymus americanus) this plant is usually not noticed until the fruit develops in fall. It grows 4 to 6 feet tall and its loose suckering form makes it good plant for naturalizing.
