Would anyone be so kind as to tell me the name of the prickly shrub which has hawthorn like small white flowers in May?
Ask me another.
supernoodle, that actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks.
Was a gift of a lead line....
Sorry, Musical Cricketer, couldn't resist.
Hope someone more sensible can help you out
That would be my first guess.
we may need a few more clues, or even better a photo.
Evergreen or deciduous
Thank you. I have seen this shrub a few times now particularly used as a low hedge overlooking a garden wall.
So, is it evergreen?
Try googling pyracantha for a start.
Berberis is a good hedging shrub with barbs, it is reddish in colour and yellow flowers in spring.
Hedging shrub with small white flowers in Spring.Evergreen.
Have you tried googling Pyracantha yet?
It is not a Pyracantha,thank you.
..clearly a vexing question.... can I have 4 choices please?
so I can either...ask the audience...phone a friend...or do a 50/50... thank you...
We're not getting many clue are we
What aspect of the flowers is hawthorn like? Is it the colour, the shape of the individual flowers, the way the flowers are arranged?
Are the leaves dark or light green. Are they shaped like hawthorn, long and thin, short and wide, divided into lobes.
There are a lot of shrubs and trees and although we're good we don't do ESP
Could it be Potentilla http://www.rhs.org.uk/Search?query=potentilla
It really would be helpful if we could see a photo
Sounds like privet?
my privet doesn't have prickles nor does my potentilla.
