Pyracantha Red Column Large 3 litre plants 160/180cm. An upright, quick growing beautiful, thorny shrub perfect for a wall side border, whether this be at the side of a house or against a wall as an impenetrable hedge. The delicate small clusters of white flowers look beautiful late spring to summer this is then followed by vibrant red berries through to Autumn.  The vibrant red berry looks magnificent against the dark green dense foliage.   It is well known for attracting wildlife into a garden.  As well as the hedge providing cover for nests etc the birds can also feed on the berries.   

What to expect  Your plant will arrive in a 3 litre pot and will be approximately 160/180cm tall excluding pot, they are fast growing The plants are extremely thorny so we would suggest you use protective gloves when removing from the packaging.

 

 

Pruning - Pyracantha is very low maintenance but care must be taken when pruning so as not to remove too much of last years growth. New growth appears mainly on shoots from the previous year, so it is advisable, when pruning, to retain as much of the old wood as possible. The ideal time to prune is when the plant is in flower to ensure the berries are best shown later in the year. If your pyracantha is to form a tight hedge in a particular shape then we suggest you prune 3 times a year.

Ideally planted in full sun to encourage berries, although they will be fine in partial sun. They can be planted in most soil conditions but thrive in fertile well drained soil. Before planting prepare your soil with some fertiliser this will help to get the plant established. Watering will be required whilst the plants become established, but once they are this will seldom be required except, like most plants, in the garden, during very dry spells. Feed early winter with a general purpose fertiliser. This plant has no special requirement during the winter months.
