Euonymus Europaeus

Euonymus europaeus, commonly known as European spindle or simply spindle tree, is a deciduous shrub or small tree native to Europe, including parts of western Asia. It typically grows up to 4 meters in height and is known for its distinctive features. The leaves are ovate, turning vibrant shades of red, orange, and pink in autumn, adding to its ornamental value. In the spring, inconspicuous greenish flowers appear, followed by striking pinkish-red fruits with orange seeds that persist into the winter months, providing a splash of colour against the stark winter landscape. The wood of the spindle tree has historically been used for crafting small objects such as spindles, hence its name. However, parts of the plant, including the fruits and seeds, are toxic if ingested, so caution should be exercised around pets and children. Despite its toxicity, Euonymus europaeus remains a popular choice in gardens and landscapes for its attractive foliage and fruit display throughout the year.
