Pyracantha Mohave is a vigorous, compact, thorny evergreen shrub with upright branches, small, ovate, glossy, dark green leaves, and clusters of lovely, white flowers in summer. Flowers are followed by masses of attractive, bright red-orange berries that create a spectacular display from late summer to winter. Firethorn 'Mohave' is adaptable to various types of soil, but prefers fertile, slightly alkaline, sandy, loamy, moist and well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but grows easily in partial shade. However, flowering and fruiting are better in full sun. Once established, it is tolerant of drought. Resistant to frost and urban pollution. Generally, pest-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Pyracantha Mohave is a very decorative fruiting shrub, valued for its evergreen foliage and attractive scarlet fruit. It is great as a specimen or foundation plant, excellent for barrier hedging and espaliers, wall-side borders and trellises. Ideal for informal, cottage, urban, and wildlife gardens.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
