What is the difference between victory pyracantha and graber's pyracantha, two versions in your catalog. I'm looking to plant a pyracantha bush with deep red berries in a bare spot in between two orange berried pyracantha shrubs 10-12' tall.

Here are the catalog descriptions of both plants. I think 'Graberi' is the best for your purpose. Pyracantha koidzumii 'Victory'is a bold, upright grower displays intense red berry clusters late in season and holds them through winter. Excellent hedge, screen, windbreak or barrier planting. Small white flowers. Evergreen. Full sun. Fast grower to 8 to 10 feet tall, 6 to 8 feet wide. Pyracantha fortuneana 'Graberi'Lustrous dark green foliage on this vigorous, upright grower valued for its huge clusters of large red berries that last well into winter. Outstanding espalier on wall or fence. Effective barrier hedge, windbreak. Evergreen. Full sun. Fast grower to 10 to 12 feet tall, 8 to 10 feet wide.
