The firethorns make up a small genus of seven species of spiny, evergreen shrubs that are natives of southeast Europe, East and West Asia, and the Himalayas. They are grown for their dense habit, their flowers and their showy fruits, and are ideal as a shrub border, hedging, screening, and can be trained against a wall or fence.
They prefer any well drained soil, and flower and fruit best in full sun. Though pruning is not essential, they can be cut back in spring to restrict growth.
