Pyracantha provides lots of colour as well as a natural and valuable winter bounty

Pyracantha is a tough resilient shrub, easily trained against a wall to provide a fierce barrier to deter unwanted visitors. The tight network of strong branches, armed with fierce sharp syringe-like needle thorns, offers great shelter for the smaller nesting birds in summer, and in winter a bountiful harvest of berries, a particular favourite with Blackbirds. At this time of year, the colourful bright berries (red or yellow depending on variety) is a delightful sight in the garden adding some timely seasonal colourful cheer, and helps to brighten up the overcast December days.
