The flowers, which are an insignificant, are nectar-rich and an important food source for hoverflies, bees and other insects. They are pollinated by the St Mark's fly. Both leaves and fruits are poisonous to humans. Spindle is said to be a winter refuge for the black aphids which can plague broad beans, so vegetable growers may choose to live without this species. On the other hand, once you've seen the amazing fruits you may decide you can tolerate a few aphids, which will in any case bring in blue tits and other insect-eating birds.
