Wyevale Nurseries to sell award winning Pyracantha

Published: 1 April 2019 - Kiran Grewal

Staff at Wyevale Nurseries are being granted the sale and propagation licence for an award-winning Pyracantha.

Wyevale Nurseries in Hereford will be growing Pyracantha ‘Red Star’, which was the winner of the Innovation Award in the category of woody plants in January at IPM ESSEN 2019. 

Kyle Ross, production manager at the Containers Division at Wyevale Nurseries, explained: “We’re extremely excited to have been granted the sale and propagation licence for Pyracantha ‘Red Star’. It was bred by Van der Sar Longlife Plants in the Netherlands and we obtained the licence from Plantipp.

“It’s such a stunning plant with year-round interest. It produces an abundance of glossy, vivid red berries and they can remain on the plant through Christmas and into February.

“The longevity of the berries has prompted the novel idea of using this Pyracantha as a house plant, particularly over the festive period – bringing its seasonally topical colours inside.

“Pyracantha ‘Red Star’ has less thorns than standard Pyracantha making it far easier to handle. Combine this with the fact it is evergreen, produces a mass of flowers through late spring and summer and its showy winter berry colour, Red Star certainly offers something each season.

“We will be growing Pyracantha ‘Red Star’ in a three-litre pot and will have a trial quantity available next summer (2020) and then a full promotional quantity available in 2021.

“We’re so happy to be working with a selection of breeders and building new relationships so we can support plant innovation.”
