Firethorns Make Good Utility Shrubs | What Grows There :: Hugh Conlon, Horticulturalist, Professor, Lecturer, and Gardener
Firethorn (Pyracantha spp.) is an old- fashion shrub that is making a comeback. Its white flowers makes a lovely presence in spring, followed by dark green leaves in summer, and bright orange or red fruits (berry clusters) in fall and winter. Firethorn tolerates close clipping and is often utilized as a short 6-8 foot tall privacy screen.
