Summer blossom

Pyracantha

I have had this little Pyracantha (Firethorn) since 1987 when I bought it as garden centre stock,changed it from a more upright position to this almost semi cascade shape a few years ago, total height inc pot no more than 8 inches.Blossom just beginning to go off now should have taken photo last week really. This species is subject to scale insect attack sometimes. Please excuse the rustic stand,it is not a show stand,it is just to keep it level on the coping stone covered wall where it usually resides. Anyway Somerset is a rustic old place.Pyraacantha 1 FB

About Michael Cooper

Bonsai enthusiast and artist. After recording the rural scene in watercolours for over thirty years and having my own studio gallery I am now semi retired. I still sell my prints though to customers worldwide via my website and through the Somerset Crafts Gallery, Avalon Marshes Centre,Westhay nr Glastonbury BA6 9TT. The rest of the time is spent looking after my bonsai trees, I like the exercise.

    Very beautiful and you’ve worked a lovely magic on the branches. I just hope I’m 1/4 as good at this bonsai beginning of mine too….Thank you for the beauty of your trees and all of the information.. I love the post about the cat litter as a medium. I hope I can find some at my pet store here in northern Canada..

    Take care and happy blogging to ya, from Laura ~
