    The one at the bottom of that page is a hypericum (St John's wort.)  The shrub in the first two images at the top looks like a Cotoneaster.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Is there a male/female differences with the hypericum (St John's wort)? Can't remember to have seen the yellow flowers in that fence, Chiat the beautiful red berries.



    Thank you

    Welcome Ed!  Cotoneasters come in small and large leaved varieties.  I suspect yours (in the first link) may be this one:

    Some of the hypericums have very small flowers so you may have missed them.

    Yes, I think it is Cotoneaster Bullatus. They look very nice. What's the best way to plant them in from of the house in a small railing?

    is Pyracantha

    The first of the original pics is a cotoneaster

    Hello Nutcutlet. It looks very much like Pyracantha yes. There are quite a few that look quite similar actually.
