The Q&A Archives: Stake or not to stake?

Question: I purchased one of your Victory Pyracantha shrubs. I am wondering if it needs to be trellised, or just let it grow freely. It is planted in the sun, and has a lot of roaming field in which to grow.
Thank you,
Peg Klapwyk

Answer: Your new pyracantha will grow into a large mound if left to its own devices. Staking or trellising is only required if you want to train it into a specific shape. I'd let it grow freely. Enjoy!
