Pyracantha Coccinea ‘Red Column’ is an upright, dense, prickly, evergreen shrub with elliptical, glossy green leaves and clusters of 5-petal, white flowers blooming in summer. Flowers are followed by masses of bright red berries which last throughout autumn and part of the winter looking very attractive and providing food for garden wildlife. Pyracantha Coccinea ‘Red Column’ thrives in average, fairly fertile, neutral to alkaline, moist, well-drained soils. It grows best in full sun to partial shade. Once established, tolerant of drought. It is resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered from harsh, winter winds. Low maintenance plant, it doesn’t require pruning. Tough and very easy to care for. ‘Red Column’ Firethorn is an excellent and attractive shrub that provides interest all year round. Because of its dense and prickly habit, ideal for informal, impenetrable hedges and screens. Suitable for informal, cottage, and wildlife gardens. It can be trained up a wall or a trellis or grown as a freestanding shrub.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
