Euonymus 'Miss Pinkie' Tree

Spindle Trees

from From £29.99 (ex. VAT)
( £35.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This relatively new variety of Euonymus hamiltonianus is a far superior version, with a better display of the colourful fruit clusters that make Spindle Trees so popular. Hamilton's Spindle Tree Miss Pinkie is an upright shrub or small tree with large green leaves throughout spring and summer, turning yellow in autumn. The yellow autumn leaves contrast wonderfully with the heavy clusters of pink fruits which encase red-orange seeds from August to November. Such bright splashes of colour in late summer and autumn make Euonymus hamiltonianus Miss Pinkie a great choice for adding interest to the garden at a time when many other shrubs are fading away for winter.

Hamilton's Spindle tree Miss Pinkie is named after Francis Buchanan-Hamilton (1762-1829) a Scottish physician who, whilst living in India, contributed significantly to the field of botany. With a final height and spread of 1.5 x 1.5 metres, Euonymus Miss Pinkie is suited to small gardens and will grow best in a well drained yet moist soil. Plant in a sunny or partially shaded position.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery Costs

1 small tree (most trees with a height under 1.5 metres) : £7.95 + vat
1 medium tree (most trees with a height of 1.5-2 metres) or 2-4 small trees: £9.95 + vat
2+ medium trees or 5+ small trees: £12.95 + vat
1-4 large trees: £19.95 + vat

Orders containing mature trees, pleached trees or 5+ large trees are calculated in the checkout process.  These costs vary by postcode, but you can buy more than one tree for the same delivery cost and so if you are purchasing a good number of trees it works out to be economical.

The above prices exclude the Scottish Highlands, where delivery starts from £24.95 + vat and is calculated in the checkout process.

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, Non Mainland UK and Overseas Destinations

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees, but if you have a larger requirement then please do speak to us and we'll see if we can find a solution.

Planting Advice for Euonymus Miss Pinkie trees

When planting Euonymus Miss Pinkie trees, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown Euonymus trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around, inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. We recommend planting any ornamental tree with a stake and tie, to see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Euonymus Miss Pinkie trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.


Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Spindle trees

Spindle trees do not require regular pruning. If you wish to tidy up your Euonymus Miss Pinkie tree, do this during the dormant season. Focus on removing any damaged, diseased or overcrowded branches. If you require a clear trunk, remove any side shoots to help raise the crown.
