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.
Prices shown are the price per plant. Recommended planting densities are shown but this is very much a matter of choice and you can increase or reduce the density depending on your level of patience. Cell grown should be planted at 4 per metre in a single row or ideally 6 per metre in a staggered row. See also our Advice section on Planting Density on the right hand side of our website.
