Pomegranate - Punica
The typical Pomegranate is a fruit-bearing shrub known for its tart ruby red fruit, and has been cultivated since ancient times around the Mediterranean area. Garden Crossings’ selection is a new and exciting introduction, which is compact and ornamental. This Pomegranate is evergreen in zones 7-10 and has showy bright orange nodding blossoms that resemble those of the fuchsia annual. The blooms give way to small Pomegranate fruits, which are more ornamental than they are edible. The Pomegranate is a wonderful landscape plant in warmer areas, and it can be grown as a patio or indoor plant in colder regions.
