Why are you allowing those suckers to grow off the trunk? They are making that area that's too fat already even fatter.

Hi Akhater

This is a really healthy plant you have here..I have a Phyracanta, and it grows slooow.....maybe I should send it to you on vercation Smile.
I am sure other people on IBC can give you good advise for your cascade....for now would I keep the long suckers, they are maybe usefull as you say.
What I would do now.... The plant look potbound, I would repot it in a larger container in the angle you wish for, without touching the roots, this will give you a better picture of the future design. Post a photo, and maybe someone will make you a virtual.

Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks Yvonne
it is in fact root bound but since it's soil is so bad I thought it was better to wait till fall and give it a proper reporting.

If it is not a good subject for cascade I am open for all suggestions. I have never done a tree before so cascade might not fit at all. I am mainly hoping for help along the path.

All I know is that I don't want to wait for a thicker trunk but do something with it as it is

You can encourage the cascade branch by tilting the pot so that it is pointing up. That will also slow down the suckers since they will be pointing sideways. Since it is rootbound this will be easy - set it upright to water and then put it on its side.

Question. In the close up, this pyracantha looks like its leaves are whitening. I have 2 plants with this really fine white "splotchiness" in the leaves and can't find any information about it online. Both are citrus trees. Can anybody here explain what this is and what to do about it?
