Spindle Berries are large shrubs to small trees from open, slightly moist spots in woods throughout Europe to Japan. Very easy in cultivation, good to cut back. Spindle Berries have usually small, greenish flowers in spring, yet very decorative, bright pink to scarlet fruits which open widely to release brilliant orange to rose seeds from late summer to autumn or early winter. Foliage turns bright yellow to burning red in autumn.
Sow flat in n any well drained, slightly sandy, humus rich soil in autumn to early spring, keep pots in a partially shaded place. Cultivate plants in pots for two years before transplanting to the open garden.
Note: All parts (especially the attractive fruits) are poisonous if eaten.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
