Pyracantha 'Orange Glow'
Firethorn - 3 litres
Pyracantha 'Orange Glow' is a vigorous, dense, prickly evergreen with small neat leaves and prolific showy clusters of creamy white flowers in early summer, followed by masses of deep orange-red berries which last well into winter. The flowers are attractive to bees in spring and the berries to birds in winter. Most often seen trained against a wall or fence, it can also be grown as a bushy, free-standing shrub in a border or as a hedge. Height and spread up to 3m (10ft.), though can be kept more compact by pruning.
Thrives in well-drained, fertile soil in sun or light shade. Trim after flowering in midsummer, to keep neat and expose the ripening berries.
