Angel Red® Pomegranate
Punica granatum 'Smith' PP #16,578
|Description||Simply the best pomegranate on the market! Large, showy, bright, orange-red blooms on upright, fount-like branches produce large, vivid red fruit that ripens late summer to fall. Less pulp and higher juice content than others, with seeds soft enough to be eaten fresh. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Late Winter to Spring|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 10 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Container, Espalier, Hedge|
|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.|
|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.|
