Pyracantha Red Berries (Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column') Hedge Plants Description

Pyracantha is a dense, spiny evergreen shrub so ideal as an intruder deterrent but this variety is also chosen for its profuse, long lasting red berries in Autumn and we also love it for its highly scented creamy flowers in May.

It is a tough, hardy plant which grows quite quickly (approx 50cm p.a.) and should be pruned after flowering to expose the spent flowers, which will become berries, to sunshine. It's very easy to grow in most soils and sun or partial shade but is not suitable for seaside gardens, very dense shade, or very windy sites.

The network of armoured stems make it a great nesting site for small birds - with "breakfast in bed" in Winter when they feast on the ripe berries.

See our Pyracantha hedging guide for more information.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Pyracantha Red should be pruned late Summer after flowering to expose the spent flowers, which will become berries.
