Pyracantha (Firethorn) - Orange Charmer 

Pyracantha Orange Charmer is a good multi season shrub - and evergreen at that.

Masses of orange berries in the autumn preceded by a good show of creamy white flowers in mid summer. Feed the birds, and grow in full sun or partial shade.

Ramble them against a wall or fence - or grow as a large shrub/small tree at back of a shrub border. Sun or semi shade no problem.

An added plus - as long as you are not pruning - is that it has thorns - vicious thorns. Great for keeping intruders out!

This is one of the best of the orange Pyracanthas. It is best grown against a wall, fence or as a hedge. Not so good as a free standing shrub.

Relatively trouble-free - other than avoiding the thorns when pruning or clipping.

See main Pyracantha page here or main shrub section here.
