Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column'
Firethorn - 3 litres
Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column' (firethorn) is an upright, dense and prickly arrangement, living up to its evocative name with a mass of bright red berries borne in autumn after profuse clusters of white flowers in summer. Foliage is tiny and dark green. Excellent for impenetrable hedging or as a wall plant and a good source of food for birds in winter.
A large hardy evergreen shrub. Plant in any fertile well-drained soil in a sunny or partially-shaded position sheltered from cold winds.
