Color as Distinctive as its Name
The Mohave Pyracantha looks like a shrub you'd expect to see in an oasis. Exploding with color from the hordes of berries hanging in thick clusters, this gorgeous evergreen is the ultimate in eye candy. Its countless berries pop with such brightness, you almost need sunglasses to look at them. Initially the berries emerge as a deep burnt-orange, but soon turn to a bright fire-engine red. The plump, juicy berries are so tightly packed, they almost resemble giant, flaming raspberries. It's a wonderful look to usher in the fall. When spring arrives, white flowers will burst onto the scene and cover your shrub. No wonder the Royal Horticultural Society gave it the Award of Garden Merit.
Carefree and Captivating, Mohave has it all
The Mohave's tough nature makes it a wonderful shrub for a variety of planting options. With a high tolerance to shade and wind exposure, this hardy evergreen works well when used to create a screen or hedge throughout the landscape. So appealing are the berries, the Mohave works well as a specimen all on its own. In addition to its ability to adapt to difficult conditions, the shrub is highly productive, yielding tons of flavorful fall berries, perfect for making homemade jellies and jams to enjoy throughout the holiday season.
When your planting needs call for attention, turn to the Mohave Pyracantha. You'll be glad you did.

Brilliant little shrub
As usual this came well packed and very healthy. I ordered two and after being planted they dropped a few leaves and sulked for a week or so and then started shooting out new growth. I think they will do very well the berries that were on the shrub already are beginning to darken up and look quite lovely and bright.
It was very large and delivered promptly. It is doing very well but it hasn't been planted long so I haven't seen any berries Or growth yet.
My Pyracantha experience.
The three pyracantha bushes I ordered came packed in a single box. I placed the 3 plants in the shade and watered them immediately. Several days later I planted them and all three started sprouting new growth right away which really surprised me. I would certainly buy from these folks again.
Great barricade hedge.
Needed to prevent children from nearby school from cutting thru yards and scaling fences. This has done the trick is growing well in semi shade looks gorgeous and also provides for the birds.
Dead on arrival
Plant took too long to get here four days. I don't think it will live. I put water in container the day it arrived and planted the next day. All leaves were dried up and have fallen off. Plant has been kept wet.
