There is one plant in my front garden that delights me even more in the winter as in the summer.
common name: firethorn
scientific name: Pyracantha coccinea
This thorny evergreen shrub boasts dainty white flowers in summer and these brilliant firey berries come winter. The berries, technically pomes, are loved by onlookers as well as our minimal urban wildlife. While firethorn isn’t technically related to holly, it has obvious similarities and feels like a perfect holiday accompaniment!
