Special Attributes

Stunning in both bloom and berry, Cherri Berri is a fast growing Pyracantha prized for its abundant clusters of bright cherry-red berries that appear in fall and persist through winter. Preceding the berries are abundant clusters of white flowers in spring. Excellent as a colorful specimen or natural hedge that requires little to no pruning. The flexible branches of Cherri Berri make it a fine selection for use as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall), which will require some occasional pruning. Birds love the berries and will thank you for planting this berry factory! 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide, depending on pruning, the Cherri Berri Pyracantha is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, to frame the corners of tall homes, as a natural hedge, and is most often used as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall). A fine addition to berry gardens, red or white theme gardens, and cottage gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  6 to 7 feet apart for privacy screens, 16 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Cherri Berri Pyracantha is adaptable to a wide range of cultural conditions from well-drained to constantly moist soil, acid to alkaline soils, and full sun to part shade. It is moderately drought tolerant, resistant to sea salt, and very durable and adaptable for use in southern landscapes. Pruning will be necessary to maintain hedges or espalier, but can be left to grow in its natural form if desired.
