Pyracantha - Firethorn Plants
Pyracanthas, also known as firethorns, are the ideal choice for an attractive security hedge. They feature evergreen leaves that cover the thorny branches all year round. In summer, corymbs of small white flowers cover the shrub and these are later followed by glossy berries that are red, orange or yellow.
These hardy shrubs are pollution-tolerant and can be planted in all soil types. They will grow well in any fertile soil and will be happy in either full sun or partial shade.
