Does anyone know when European Spindle starts to come into leaf?  Mine look dead!

    I nearly dug it up last year because it looked so lifeless, but I got distracted and then it burst into life, so I just leave it to get on with it now.

    I have two small European spindles that I bought last autumn which are now out in leaf and one is about to flower, but I am in the sunny south. One is about a week behind the other because it's in a shady spot, I expect yours will be fine though. image

    Hey Mrs. G, It's alive, noticed well developed buds while I was beheading a fern earlier. It didn't look like that the other day.

    Thanks Lisa.  I gave the bark a little scratch today and it was green underneath-yay!
