EUONYMUS

Commonly known as Spindle tree

Genus of about 130 species of deciduous, semi-evergreen and evergreen shrubs, trees and climbers found mainly in woodland and thickets mainly in Asia.

Our UK native, E. europaeus, known for its red seed capsules and orange seeds,  is found mainly on chalk so absent in Scotland. The very hard wood was used for making skewers and spindles, hence the common name.
