Firethorn
Pyracantha augustifolia

Height ... 16 inches     Root base ... 4 inches



Here is my "weeping" style pyracantha after it was first styled and potted. Looked pretty bad when I first styled this tree but I had a future plan for it in my "mind's eye". 

Tree was purchased as raw nursery stock from a local landscape nursery in 1991.

 

This is a photo of the pyracantha during the summer of 1998. I had re-potted the bonsai in a deeper pot and was working on the structure of the bonsai.

As you can see, I re-potted the bonsai into an even larger pot. I'll be looking for an even nicer pot in the future.
