Pomegranate Punica granatum is a highly ornamental plant and one of the toughest shrubs you can grow. They do well in aerated soil, with some added organic matter. Pomegranates can be propagated from seed sown in spring or from cuttings taken between spring and autumn. Pomegranates have attractive glossy green leaves and like to be pruned.
The plants produce tangerine, orange, crinkly petaled flowers from late spring to late summer. These are followed by the most extraordinary shaped fruit which appear like a shiny crown. Excellent Bonsai material.
