The Firethorn is a remarkable berried shrub that retains its foliage all winter.
Attractive, long trusses of pure white flowers in May are only a prelude to the big show.
An abundance of brilliant, orange-scarlet berries follow the bloom and the bush becomes a "mound of flame" with the effect lasting well into winter.
The Firethorn is wonderful for Christmas decorations.
It is very tolerant of dry soil and loves sun but can be planted in partial sun, and ideal for foundation plantings hedges when placed 3-4 feet apart.
Drought and deer resistant, evergreen, good for cutting.
