Pyracantha Teton is a thorny shrub that grows upright and dense. Here are 5 reasons to grow Pyracantha Teton in your garden:

(2) If you would like to create a natural border, Pyracantha Teton has thorns which discourage animals and humans.
(3) Pyracantha Teton is a drought-tolerant shrub, so it isn’t necessary to water very often. To determine how often too water plants, click here.

Last Autumn, we pruned the Pyracantha Tetons by cutting off about of foot of growth to make them even more dense. This Autumn, they do look more dense! The abundant rains in early Spring have made them 8 – 10 feet tall! We will cut another 1 – 2 feet off this Autumn.
