Spindle hedging plants provide a wonderful array of autumn colour. The four lobed capsules burst into life with a vibrant shade of pink, opening to reveal orange fruits in autumn. Euonymus europaeus hedging plants have dark green foliage that transforms into rich shades of red and yellow in autumn, adding another layer of colour to your garden. Euonymus europaeus earned its common name from the wool spindles that were made from its strong wood.

Spindle (Euonymus europaeus) hedging plants description

Spindle is a relatively fast growing hedging plant that boasts wonderful autumn colour to really brighten up a winter scene. The fruits which appear in autumn can hang onto the branches well into winter, providing a splash of orange when most other plants are settling down for the cold weather. For optimum fruit production plant in a sunny site, however Spindle hedges can withstand partial shade. Although Euonymus europaeus is best suited to a well-drained, moist soil it does cope well in wet soils.

Best uses for Spindle hedging

Spindle hedges produce inconspicuous flowers in May-June that are rich in nectar, attracting pollinating insects and making it a great hedge to include in a wildlife garden. It is important to mention that the leaves and fruit are harmful if eaten, so it is best not to plant in reach of children or pets.

Pot grown and cell grown plants are available year round and make a great option when planting a hedge. Pots come in various sizes, as do the plants grown in them, and can be planted when convenient for you. These plants will be happy in their pots, given enough water, until you’re ready to plant. Cell Grown plants are usually small, 10-30cm and a great step between Pots and Bare Roots.

Bare root hedging plants are extremely popular. They are delivered and should be planted during the dormant season (usually November to April) and can be pre ordered from mid-summer. We recommend pre-ordering where possible to reserve your plants but take new orders right the way through the season. Bare roots are a cost effective way of planting a new hedge.

Root balls are generally available from October through to April/May, though some species are available year round. The plants are field grown and then lifted with a ‘ball’ of soil around the roots that is secured with hessian and sometimes wire. Root balls are often very impressive plants that can be pre ordered from mid-summer.
