The Spindle (Euonymus europaeus) is an attractive native deciduous shrub, its main feature being the bright pink flowers with orange fruits borne in the summer and autumn. When ripe, the four lobes split open to reveal the orange seeds.
Spindle hedge plants are tolerant of coastal conditions and wet soils.
The Spindle makes an attractive addition to any mixed hedge and is fairly vigorous. European spindle wood is very hard, and can be cut to a sharp point; in the past it was used for making wool spindles.
