Would anyone be so kind as to tell me the name of the prickly shrub which has hawthorn like small white flowers in May?
Ask me another.
supernoodle, that actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks.
Was a gift of a lead line....
Sorry, Musical Cricketer, couldn't resist.
Hope someone more sensible can help you out
That would be my first guess.
we may need a few more clues, or even better a photo.
Evergreen or deciduous
Thank you. I have seen this shrub a few times now particularly used as a low hedge overlooking a garden wall.
So, is it evergreen?
Try googling pyracantha for a start.
Berberis is a good hedging shrub with barbs, it is reddish in colour and yellow flowers in spring.
