Description

Wooly Firethorn Gnome, Narrowleaf Firethorn
Family: Rosaceae
Genus: Pyracantha
Cultivar: Gnome

 

Pyracantha is a slender firethorn and woolly firethorn is grown for its dense habit, evergreen foliage, and a spectacular display of orange berries in fall and winter. It features narrow, elliptic to lanceolate, glossy green leaves (to 2.5″ long) which are evergreen in warm winter climates but semi-evergreen to deciduous in the St. Louis area. Needle-like spines to 3/4″ long. Profuse clusters of tiny white flowers appear in spring on spurs along with the prior year’s wood. Flowers are unpleasantly aromatic. Flowers give way to pea-sized, brilliant orange or yellow fruits which ripen in September and persist well into winter. ‘Gnome’ is a compact cultivar that grows 6-8′ tall and is noted for its winter hardiness. Excellent specimen or grouping. Shrub borders or foundations. Good impenetrable hedgerow or informal hedge. May be grown as a sheared hedge, but severe pruning performed after flowering will adversely affect fruit production. Zone 5a.


Cold-stratified seeds for 3 months then sow.
