Dwarf Pomegranate

A small summer-flowering deciduous shrub with unusual orange flowers with delicate petals which stop short of fully opening. It can produce small fruit which have a good proportion of seed but it really needs a warm summer to do so. For fruiting the best results are probably achieved if grown in a greenhouse or similar environment but it can be grown in a very sheltered mild garden where frost is rare. A courtyard garden in coastal or southern regions of the UK could be suitable. It is a compact, small leaved variety which makes it a good candidate for growing as a Bonsai. Feed monthly in summer with tomato food.
