Euonymus europaeus Scarlet Wonder

Spindle Scarlet Wonder

A cultivar of our native spindle-tree, Euonymus europaeus Scarlet Wonder is a medium-sized, spreading, deciduous shrub with a bushy habit, chiefly grown for its wonderful autumn colour. Narrow, oval, green leaves turn rich shades of yellow, orange and pinkish-red in autumn. The small yellow flowers are followed in autumn by the familiar shocking-pink fruits, which split open to reveal contrasting orange seeds and persist long after the leaves fall; these are an imortant food source for birds. Tolerant of all soil types, spindle Scarlet Wonder does particularly well in alkaline, even chalky, soil.
