- Disease resistant
Juke Box® ×Pyracomeles is a remarkable new dwarf broadleaf evergreen could be mistaken for a boxwood or small holly at first glance; however, it comes without the threat of boxwood blight or spider mites. It has a natural, globe-like habit but can be sheared and shaped as desired. Fine branching creates a full habit. ×Pyracomeles is an intergeneric hybrid between Pyracantha and Osteomeles, but it has no thorns and does not flower. Faster to produce than boxwood as well.
