Pyracantha Graber's Firethorn

Pyracantha graberi

Pyracantha Graber's Firethorn is a robust, upright grower valued for its showy clusters of large red berries and its ability to add a quick privacy hedge, wide screen or windbreak which can help protect homes from the natural elements while also helping to block out unwanted views! This evergreen is mostly used along borders and walls, with clusters of showy white flowers in the spring giving way to the ornamental berries from late summer and well into winter - lighting up a garden with beautiful displays of color! Pyracantha graberi puts on an impressive show in the fall too, when the dark green foliage is in full effect, adding a beautiful contrast with the bloom and attracting birds into your garden, as well as adding valuable year-round interest with its desirable landscape uses!

This is a low maintenance plant that loves full sun exposure and loves the heat too. It’s also cold hardy, and once established, Pyracantha Graber's Firethorn will need only low to moderate watering, so you don’t have to have a green thumb for it to survive. It has a fast growth rate, which is part of the reason why it’s such a popular choice for barriers, screening, borders and espalier - all things that many Southern California homeowners living in tighter spaces want! It’s also a good choice if you’re looking for a natural and easy home security alternative – we like to plant them around windows for added peace of mind!
