Small Pyracantha under development

Post  JimLewis on Sun Sep 15, 2013 7:14 pm

I have no idea of the species. It has the smallest leaves of any Pyracantha I've seen -- and orange berries. I struck this cutting a couple of years ago (exact date uncertain) when I was cutting back the parent plant. The plant has now been dug up and disposed of. It was one of these that reached out and wounded you every time you passed it.

It has been growing like a house afire. I have to trim long, wild shoots back monthly.



I think you can see what I'm planning for this, but other suggestions will be welcome. The pot is an old, cheap Chinese pot that I've had longer than I can recall and am quite fond of -- even if it is one of those "bathtub pots."
