Pyracantha Bonsai

Botanical name:  Pyracantha coccinea

Pyracantha, also known as a Firethorn, is an easy plant to take care of with small leaves, white blooms in the spring and beautiful red berries that completely cover the tree in the fall.

During the summer you can place this tree outside to cut back on maintenance and provide ideal conditions.   Bonsai trees should never be placed in full sun, and should be place in partly shady area.  In the winter they need to be brought inside once the temperatures start dropping below 40 degrees.  Pyracantha are hardier than most other tropicals.  It's very important to check and water daily.
