I.D. please. Seen at Highdown Gardens, nr. Worthing today.




Sorry, can't help you Shirley tulip, but there may be hope, I have seen a shrub like this on here recently, hope the person who put it up answers your question soon.

I think its Euonymus hamiltonius 'Red Elf'

I think its a variety of Euonymus europaeus, but the centre of the fruits are red and black and not yellow. Perhaps I might lead someone else on the right track. Bamboo, you've beaten me and I think you have it.

Thanks everyone for such prompt replies ...

It's very like the spindle bush that Katarina posted in a blog a week or so ago; just different colours. So, yes, Euonymus of some type.

yep, you're right Gattina - not Euonymus europaeus, but the closely related E. hamiltonius Red Elf, which has these much pinker seed cases with red seeds inside.

What a lovely plant! Looks like each flower has its own ladybird!
