This showy, dense, dwarf shrub displays attractive orange-red single flowers at an early age, followed by bright orange-red ornamental fruit. Excellent for containers or for use in the garden. A very effective bonsai specimen. Thrives in hot, dry summer areas. Deciduous.
Pomegranate trees reach mature heights of up to 30 feet (9 m.), which makes them too tall for most home environments. You can get around the size problem when growing pomegranate houseplants by planting a dwarf pomegranate tree, which reaches heights and widths of 2 to 4 feet (0.5-1 m.). Many people grow dwarf pomegranates strictly as ornamental trees because the small, sour fruits are loaded with seeds.
