Design Ideas Pomegranate is exceptional for Mediterranean style gardens as well as most xeriscape settings, though the fruit is highest quality with supplemental water during flowering and fruiting season.This is an excellent choice for a courtyard specimen. Grow in fruit orchard or kitchen gardens. Excellent fruit producer in very hot gardens with difficult soils.
Flower Color Orange
Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Italian Cypress (Cupressa); Lavender (Lavandula); Bay Laurel (Laurus); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Meyer Lemon (Citrus)
Care Provide average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. When established, reduce frequency after fruit ripens, and increase during bloom period; tolerates moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth appears in spring. Prune annually, to shape.
Lore The single genus of the family Punciaceae was classified by Linnaeus who Latinized the ancient name, Malum puncium, which translates to "apple of Carthage" which was its early common name. Pomegranate fruit came to symbolize fertility due to its abundance of seeds.
