This is a great easy choice for beginner to bonsai experts. Its heat and drought tolerant quality makes it forgiving to the occasional forgotten watering on hot days. Their branches are naturally quite flexible; making it a great choice for many different styles and shapes in the future. They're known to have lots of visual interest all throughout the year!

Firethorn gets its common name from its long, sharp thorns that run along the stems. It's also known as the Scarlet Firethorn or Teton Firethorn. 'Teton' Pyracantha has a distinct vertical growth habit that produces a narrow tapered look without pruning. They have delicate dark green leaves that get covered in little white flower bunches in the spring and summer which mature into abundant yellow-orange ornamental berries in late August and persist into winter. Sometimes you'll notice the berries turn into a red-orange color when grown in the northwestern U.S. 

This tree's small size makes it great for use as a starter pre-bonsai or shohin & mame bonsai shapes. It will come in a 4 inch square nursery growing plastic pot.

House of Bonsai reserves the right to delay on shipping any live plant order by several days; in order to attempt to decrease the high risk of major shipping related stress that may shock the plants during extreme weather conditions (too hot or cold). If we are purposely delaying your order because of this, we will notify you via email. Before you submit an order, please be mindful of your local weather and time of year. If there is major damage (ex: plant is dead or many branches are broken), please contact your third party shipping carrier (ex: USPS, FedEx, UPS) to submit an insurance claim with them as we are not able to assist with that matter. The fault is with the third party shipping carrier for such damage since it happened out of our hands. We are not responsible for any damages after the order leaves our facility since they were out of our control. If the bonsai tree is still alive but weakened due to shock (leaves are yellow-brownish or leaves have fallen off) then we are happy to assist in proving post-delivery plant shock care instructions via email to revive the plant. Please notify us by email of the issue within 48 hours upon receiving the order in hand. Please email us at with your Order # and the keywords "Shock After Delivery" in the title so we can assist ASAP. For further details, please read our full "Shipping, Return & Cancellation Policy" under Our Policies in our top menu.
