Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's September Checklist
Firethorn (Pyracantha spp) needs just a bit more water, as do boxwood (Buxus spp) and most of the evergreen Euonymus species. All of these plants are best at elevations of 6,000 feet or below. Application of an antidesiccant to the foliage in late November may help foliage hold its color better throughout the winter. Mulching and winter watering are critical to keep plants hydrated.
