Pyracantha x Red Elf

This lovely dwarf Pyracantha makes an excellent small hedge or container plant.

Tiny dark green leaves are excellent backgrounds for heavy display of bright red berries.

Impenetrable shrub for informal hedges, hedgerows. dense screens or property lines. Also effective when massed to cover slopes. Group in shrub borders. May be sheared as a hedge, but severe pruning performed after flowering will adversely affect fruit production. Espaliers trained on wall or fence. Best planted in areas where the thorns will not present a problem.
