Gorgeous red berries all over it. Perfect shrub for Christmas time. Garden center says it's 69.99 for an 8 ft. bush. Adjacent neighbor has a whole hedge and the berries are beautiful. Looks like he neglects it and it just goes wild. Another plant to save my money for.

Yes, I have it, as does my next door neighbor. Love it. Use it as a trellis plant at my entrance and it forms a beautiful arch. Very little maintenance needed. I trim it when the branches hang too low.

I no longer have the home that was surrounded by Pyrancantha so it may have been a different variety, but mine had very sharp thorns that were a bear if one got into your foot.

Yes, my old bungalow has three of them. I should have trimmed one of them back this year, as it's growing under the roof of the shed adjacent to it. It was trimmed last year and actually grew even faster this year, probably due to all the rain we received. That pyracantha is probably 12 ft. wide and 14 ft. tall now and is just gorgeous with all the berries on it.
