The Scarlet Firethorn is a variety of thorny evergreen shrub—a fast-growing plant with stiff branches and an upright-spreading habit that make it ideal for hedging. Native to a broad region covering southwestern Europe all the way to southeastern Asia, the plant is adaptable to a variety of environments and soil conditions. The Scarlet Firethorn gets its common name from its most distinctive feature, the abundant clusters of bright, yellow-orange fruit that cover its branches, which make a nice contrast to the shiny dark green leaves. In the late spring and early summer, the bush flowers into attractive small white blossoms. Also, see more about hedges.
