Pyracantha ‘Golden Surprise’

Firethorns (Pyracantha sp.) are tough, hardy shrubs which tolerate a wide range of demanding conditions, including shade and exposed sites. They make a dense thorny, evergreen hedge that’s ideal for warding off intruders and training on walls to display their profuse and brightly coloured berries.

Firethorns also make attractive free-standing shrubs, although growth is then often more compact and arching than those trained against a wall or fence. Pyracantha ‘Golden Surprise’ has rich green leaves and bears masses of small white, star-shaped flowers, followed by bright, orange-red berries.
