Spindle (Hedging)

Euonymus europaeus

Hardy Shrub

A much-discussed plant, as it can sometimes be spotted in hedgerows in the UK, and is recognisable by its colourful seed heads. The wood from the Spindle Bush was originally used for making spindles, hence the name. Euonymus europaeus is a large, deciduous shrub, which is fairly un-noticeable during the summer, but by autumn the foliage has turned an amazing scarlet. Then, as if that wasn't enough, the small flowers fade, and winged fruits appear, which are orange and red Supplied as 60 - 90cm bareroots (24 - 34") Height: 4m (13'). Spread: 4m (13'). Planting Distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).
