Pyracantha Orange Glow is a fast-growing hedging plant which is also well suited to screening. All Pyracantha have vicious thorns - which is why they are sometimes called Firethorn - usually well hidden behind clouds of white flowers in spring, heavy clusters of orange berries in autumn and winter and glossy evergreen foliage through the year. Pyracantha grows in almost any soil is good in exposed locations and clips beautifully as a hedge plant and as a shrub grown against a wall, trellis or fence. Once established it is vandal proof. In August, trim new growth to about three leaves in front of the ripening berries for a better display of fruit in Autumn.
Best trimmed in winter, when new growth can be cut back hard to encourage bushiness and flowering.
Good for hedges to 250+cms - 8'+ when it should be planted at 2 per metre in a single row.
