Dwarf Pyracantha - Large
Pyracantha 'Red Cushion'
If you think the name of this tree sounds hot, you’re right. Otherwise known as Firethorn, and an evergreen native to southeastern Europe and Asia, this beautiful species manifests its name in thorny branches and flame red berries (these also may be yellow or orange, depending upon the cultivar). Small, glossy leaves lend themselves to many different forms, and the hardy nature of Pyracantha makes it perfect for beginning enthusiasts.
A sun-loving tree, Firethorn bonsai can be outdoors much of the year, adding a colorful burst to your outside landscape. Starting out in the art-form can be intimidating but the little white blossoms and brilliant berries make this tree a very rewarding experience for experienced and beginning enthusiasts alike. Since this specimen is already grown to over a foot in height, you can jump right in and get to the fun part of shaping your Dwarf Pyracantha into the bonsai of your dreams.
