What is the best time to plant a pyracantha? And I would like vibrant orange berries, not red or yellow - could you recommend which is the best variety for this colour? Many thanks for any suggestions!



Shouldnt be difficult to find I am sure they all have names, but not sure of them, I have the orange one, it has masses of white flowers in the spring, then a mass of orange berries for the birds in the winter.

Thank you Lizziebee - can you remember when you planted yours? I thought about now would be right, or maybe a bit later in September, but having just done a trawl of local garden centres (for something else) I don't remember seeing any pyracanthas for sale at the moment. Unless I just missed them.

Had it for years, not sure of correct time, someone more clever than me will know I'm sure.

Thanks Lizziebee!

Usually they come container grown so can be planted most of the year, avoid frozen ground though. P 'Orange Glow' might suit you.
