In the Garden

The dwarf pomegranate grows to about 1 meter tall and makes a showy garden specimen, but don’t expect the fruits to be as big or as juicy as those of it’s full-sized cousins. It does well in a sunny, relatively well-drained position and also looks good as a larger potted specimen. New growth has a bronze tinge and the flowers are orange-red and quite spectacular. The autumn foliage is an attractive golden yellow.

Propagation

The Pomegranate is normally fairly low maintenance and is quite easy to grow. In the garden it is quite drought tolerant, and watering should be reduced during its winter dormancy.
