Plant Family Guides: Pyracantha - Firethorns Plant-Family Guides
Some trees and shrubs display beautiful fruits in late summer or fall, which persist into winter. In a glorious display of crimson, orange, yellow or even purple, their attractive berries adorn their branches in eye-catching bouquets, which gleam like jewels in the soft sunlight.
Winters may be long and cold, but your garden can allay that dreariness and be transformed into a place of natural beauty with visually arresting textures or colors. Some trees and shrubs display fiery red berries in late summer or fall, which persist into winter. In a glorious display of crimson, scarlet or vermillion, their branches are studded with jewelled clusters of berries. Every garden should contain an ornamental shrub or tree with hanging clusters of berries. Pleasing to the eyes, the fruits on some species are also a great source of food for the birds.
When embroidered with their brilliant berries, some shrubs and trees produce a more colorful display in the late season garden, than in spring and summer with their own flowers. Loaded with fruit for weeks, they create a spectacular show that pleases the eye, and the birds too. Aside from the classic red berries or the vibrant purple ones, some bushes and trees display glowing orange fruits, when color is desperately needed in the garden.
