Mohave Pyracantha is a wonderful, sturdy shrub that is smothered in white blooms in spring, and then covered in a dense crop of orange-red berries all fall and well into winter. It grows into a shrub around 10 feet tall and 6 feet across, or taller if grown on a trellis or wall. Because of its sharp thorns, hidden among the leaves, it makes an excellent security screen around a garden, or beneath windows, against both two and four-footed intruders. This beautiful shrub is easy to grow in sun or light shade, in almost all soils, doing best in sandy, moist, well-drained ones. It is tolerant of urban conditions, so it’s a perfect choice for a town-house garden, or any smaller space, where it can be trained against a wall or trellis to take up almost no room at all. It is hardy from zones 5 to 8, so it grows everywhere except in the coldest and hottest areas.

  • Spectacular fall and winter display of orange-red berries
  • Handsome glossy green foliage all year round
  • Specially bred for disease-resistance
  • Perfect as a security hedge or below windows
  • Grown on a wall it takes up almost no room

Plant the Mohave Pyracantha in a sunny spot, although it will take a little shade. During the first growing season water regularly, but once established this plant is moderately drought tolerant. Because of its special breeding it is resistant to diseases, and it has no significant pests. Deer do not eat it, and the birds leave the berries until late in the winter. This beautiful plant always catches attention, especially when it has its heavy crop of berries, that can almost hide the foliage completely. A must for every low-maintenance garden.
