Brighten Up Your Winter Garden with Berries

Pyracantha (Pyracantha sp.)
Also known as Firethorn, this plant gets its name from the profusion of orange berries amid dramatic thorns. Technically an evergreen shrub, Pyracantha is fast-growing and easy to train, and it is often grown as a colorful espalier or trellis climber. Because of the sharp thorns and dense habit, it also makes a great security hedge.
