More commonly known as Firethorn, Pyracantha ‘Saphyr Orange’ is a spiny evergreen shrub with a compact habit, narrow glossy leaves and sprays of white flowers in late spring and early summer. Bright orange berries follow, providing valuable food for the birds throughout Autumn into early winter making it an ideal plant for wildlife gardens.
Great for screening, its thorns act as a natural security barrier where defence is needed.
Perfect for hedges, fences and walls, we supply ours readily trained on a trellis.
Does well in a sheltered sunny or partial sun aspect.
Lightly prune where necessary, then mulch and feed.
Tolerates most soil conditions as long as it’s moist and well drained
Final height: 1.5-2.5m tall, 1.5-2.5m wide.
