Pyracantha rogersiana   Asian Firethorn I

Pyracantha rogersiana

Stace reckons this introduction from China is under-recorded probably because it looks much like the commoner Pyracantha coccinea (Firethorn). It has slightly smaller leaves and the petioles are without hairs.

It is found around the London area where this was photographed and in a pocket in the Midlands but there is very little recorded elsewhere - none in Scotland, Ireland or Wales.
