Red Column Pyracantha
Pyracantha Red Column Hedging
Pyracantha Red Column is an upright evergreen screening and hedge plant. Like all Pyracantha, Red Column has vicious thorns which are hidden behind clouds of white flowers in spring, numerous clusters of red berries in autumn and winter and glossy, tidy leaves through the year. Pyracantha grows in almost any soil, is good in shady and exposed locations and clips beautifully as a hedge plant or when 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 pruned 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.
