More commonly known as Firethorn, Pyracantha ‘Saphyr Rouge’ 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-red 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.
