Thank you James for your interesting article about the pyracantha. I have one growing on the front of my house where it gets the blunt of all the bad weather, driving rain and strong north winds. Despite the situation my plant thrives well and produces wonderful flowers and berries (who needs a holly?)
My pyracantha looked wonderful this Christmas with its bright red berries. I have never really understood when to prune either so just snip away at it to keep it from taking over and it has survived so far! I totally agree with James it is a very under valued plant.
