Peppy Le Pom™ - Pomegranate - Punica granatum - 4" Pot
The perfect summer patio plant! Pomegranate is a beautiful plant with a long, storied history - and this dwarf selection opens it up to a whole new audience. Peppy Le Pom™ ornamental pomegranate is a dwarf shrub that blooms early and all summer long, peppered with jaw-droppingly bright orange blooms. They give way to small ornamental fruits - the few seeds inside are edible, but not the primary reason we selected this plant. Its petite frame makes it ideal for use as a container plant, and in cold climates, it can be brought indoors for winter and grown as a houseplant. Warm climates can enjoy it as a dwarf shrub with a wide range of applications in the landscape. Evergreen under most conditions; may defoliate if exposed to temperatures below 40°F/40°C but will reflush when warm temperatures return.
