A VERY unexpected bloom

Post  JimLewis on Sat May 12, 2012 5:09 pm

This little Pyracantha was cut back to 1/4 of its 5-gallon nursery pot height this spring, severely root pruned, and jammed into this leftover 6-inch pot. I was surprised enough by all the new growth, but I looked in its back-of-the-shelf location today and discovered two small clumps of blooms. This variety has small, bright orange fruits, but I probably won't allow any to form this year.

Nice flowers Jim.
Sometimes the "rough treatment" changes the hormonal balance in a tree and seems to force blooms.

Hi Jim,

I know that most of the plants tend to bloom and fruit when they feel and think that they will die.
And some severe treatments may cause this feeling in plants Smile
Enjoy it! Smile

P.S.: Not allowing to fruits may cause the feeling of survival. Who knows? Smile
