Spindle is a familiar plant that can sometimes be spotted in UK hedgerows – it is recognisable for its colourful seed heads. Its name arises from its traditional use in making spindles.

When its small flowers fade, orange and red winged fruits appear.Supplied as 60 – 90cm bareroots (24 – 34) Height: 4m (13′). Spread: 4m (13′). Planting Distance: 30cm (12).
