Orange Pyracantha

Pyracantha is so common around here that I never thought I would actually buy and plant one in my garden. I do have six foot walls of red ones along the sides of both of my gardens thanks to previous owners and neighbors so I figured that would suffice to provide the wildlife with the tiny flowers and red berries. But buy one I did and tucked it into a corner in SJC. I bought it because it has beautiful orange berries that will be perfect for fall flower arrangements in the years to come.

I love both the red and the orange. I remember my mom having arrangements with the orange ones out around Thanksgiving Day. Thanks for conjuring up a great memory.
