Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
PYRACANTHA fortuneana 'Graberi'
Chinese Firethorn, Graber Chinese Firethorn
Graber Chinese firethorn is an upright, evergreen shrub that produces heavy crops of clustered orange to red fruits in fall. Its dense, dark green, glossy foliage develops red-brown hues in fall and winter. In spring, plants bear clusters of white flowers that develop into vibrant fruits that are orange aging to red. These resemble miniature apples, persist into winter and are eaten by birds.
Chinese firethorn prefers full sun and is adaptable to a wide range of well drained soils. It is versatile, and can be planted as informal hedging, in shrub borders or trained as an espalier or bonsai specimen.
Chinese firethorn self-sows abundantly in favorable climates, and is considered a noxious weed in parts of Australia. It is sometimes offered under the name Pyracantha crenatoserrata.
