Towering Wind Spinner is a Year-Round Attraction

Like a jumbo version of a child's pinwheel, this 74" tall kinetic sculpture turns in the slightest breeze. The two, flower-like blades spin in opposite directions to create a fascinating visual effect. An instant and dramatic focal point for your garden; just stake it into the ground and watch the wind bring it to life.

  • Powder-coated steel
  • 74" H installed x 22" W
  • Note: in high wind locations, base should be embedded in concrete

    Comments about Dahlia Wind Spinner:

    I prefer not to use man made decor in my garden but this is perfect for my vegetables. I have the blue one and it is a beautiful shade. It makes my unsightly vegetable garden (which happens to be on a knoll in my front yard due to the sun exposure) a little prettier. It looks very nice spinning. Given the materials, it is very bendable, so need to be careful when setting it up.

      Comments about Dahlia Wind Spinner:

      The double "pinwheels" set up a delightful visual when the wind finds the right angles. But it can only take advantage of limited winds because it is not equipped with the hardware to allow it to swivel into the wind.

          Very attractive however a bit disappointing in that it doesn't spin much....even in strong winds. In addition some of the petals were bent upon receipt of the package.

          Comments about Dahlia Wind Spinner:

          We love the look of this 'spinner' except the quality of craftsmanship is not there. It's hard for the wind to get it spinning due to uneven weight distribution. DO NOT BEND TINES to straighten it out! I had two break on me! The uneven spacing is part of the problem. Poor weld joints are another.

          Finish (rustic) is done well and has a nice 'worn' look to it.

          I still own it and it will spin, just not very well. If you purchase be prepared to spend some time CAREFULLY adjusting. Spinner head comes in 4 parts (2 halves each side) and you'll want a long (18") phillips head screw driver for easy assembly.

          Gardener Supply handed my disappointment with 5 star service! I can't say enough nice things about this company. Timely responses to email and a 'not until your satisfied' attitude are key to keeping my business.
          THANK YOU!!

          Will recommend to friend BUT with warnings.

          Pros

          • Looks Nice

          Cons

          • Blades Very Unbalanced

            Comments about Dahlia Wind Spinner:

            Received this as a birthday present after seeing it in the catalog for several years.
            All that I can say now is that it LOOKS nice.
            It would be nicer if it actually worked.
            I wish I had read the reviews of this product prior to asking for it.

            The blades are totally unbalanced and will not spin. I've bent them, oiled them, greased them, I shouldn't have to add counterweights to them to balance the blades, but I will. I have yet to see them spin via the wind. The blades not only don't spin in opposite directions, they don't spin at all unless spun by hand. And, for some reason, the manufacturer thought it would be a good look to spatter the rust color with bright green paint. It's isn't.

            In my opinion, the description of spinning in the slightest breeze is totally untrue and borders on fraud. Gardener's Supply has known about this since at least 2009 and continues to advertise it this way.
            VERY disappointed.

            This needs a strong wind to work properly then it is enjoyable. Would only recommend if you have the yard space and winds.
