Description:

A very handsome ornamental pomegranate cultivar which is slow growing, may only reach 1m but its bright red flowers are large, compared to its size. Any established plants will flower freely on any good soil. It prefers a hot position, against a south facing wall for example, but will flower in a good protected sunny position (does not require as much heat as the fruiting varieties as very few fruits will develop from the flowers on this variety). It branches out freely which makes it a great bonsai subject and will give an exotic effect on the patio. The pomegranate is believed to have originated in the area from Iran east to northern India, but has been cultivated around the Mediterranean for so long (several millennia) that its true native range is not accurately known. Hardy.
