Red Pyracantha Firethorn hedge (Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column') description

The highly fragrant, bee friendly white flowers of Red Firethorn, stand out against the small mid-green foliage of this evergreen hedging plant in May. Once the flowers are gone the branches are smothered in bunches of glossy red berries, which make Pyracantha hedging a great food source for wildlife, such as birds who will also nest within the dense, prickly cover.

Common uses of Red Firethorn hedging

Although not suited to coastal or windy sites Pyracantha coccinea 'Red Column' is very useful. It offers year-round cover and is fast growing, ideal for screening purposes and provides lovely seasonal interest with berries and flowers.

A Red Pyracantha Firethorn hedge is perfect for garden, formal, natural and landscape hedging, as it is easy to maintain and looks good when trimmed tightly or left a little bushy.
