Fun Facts

Never heard of Pyracomeles before? You're not alone! It's quite new to the market. Its funny name (and the "x" in front of it) derive from the two different genera that were crossed to create it - Pyracantha and Osteomeles. The "x" simply indicates that it is a cross of two species - it is not pronounced. Listen to our pronunciation recording to hear how to say it yourself.

Maintenance Notes

Juke Box® pyracomeles needs little maintenance and care. It grows in sun or part shade, and needs nothing more than average soil and water. If you wish to prune it, do so after the new growth has emerged in spring but before it becomes woody. 

This new species of evergreen has been through multiple winters in Asheville, North Carolina (USDA zone 7) with no damage. It has survived winter in zone 6, but typically with some damage to its evergreen foliage. Hence, we currently recommend this plant only for USDA zones 7 and warmer.

Uses Notes

Naturally growing as a rounded little mound, Juke Box® pyracomeles can be used just like a boxwood in the landscape. It can be trained, trimmed, or clipped if you wish.
