A deciduous shrub or small tree with zig-zagged shoots. The Paliurus spina-christi has glossy, green leaves that turn a spectacular yellow in Autumn. Small yellow flowers appear on the branches in Spring, followed by a dry nutlet that is centred in a circular wing (it is edible raw). The Christ's Thorn branches out freely, suitable for normal garden use, for the patio or for bonsai too. It develops numerous sharp thorns which makes it suitable to use it as an impenetrable hedge. Fully hardy, prefers full sun.
