- Evergreen hedge
- Deer resistant
- Great for privacy and security with sharp thorns
- Firethorn Attracts honeybees with white flowers in spring
- Bright orange berries feed birds through the winter and provide great ornamental value
Teton Firethorn makes a gorgeous evergreen hedge with year-round color and interest. In late spring, this hedge will explode with white flowers that attract honeybees and other pollinators. By fall, bright orange berries will develop and provide color for the landscape and food for birds through the winter.
As the name implies, Teton Firethorn is also covered in sharp thorns that will effectively deter deer and make it an even more effective privacy hedge.
Firethorn grows moderately quickly, about 8″ per year, and it responds well to heavy pruning. You could easily maintain this as a hedge anywhere from 3-8′ tall over time. It is a low-maintenance plant and grows well in full sun to nearly full shade. It tolerates most soils. An application of slow-release fertilizer in spring is plenty to feed this hedge through the year.
