More deliciousness for the [european] wildlife garden...

Euonymus europeaus "Red Cascade"....a slightly pendulous/floppy superheavily fruiting form of the native spindle tree.


The name spindle comes from a former use of the very hard wood. One point to note is these are, I believe, toxic to mammals so watch pets/children. That said everything else eats it and it looks awesome so plant up.


Shortly before this we had to remove a branch that had snapped under the weight of the fruit. A price worth paying.
