Design IdeasAll citrus trees are the perfect combination of ornamental and edible plant values, but dwarf citrus are even more versatile because they fit in limited spaces. Make this a single accent tree in gardens were fragrance can be appreciated close up. Add to foundation planting outside a window. If low foliage is left in place these double as a background foliage plant for more colorful shrubs and tropcials. Integrate into existing beds and borders. Grow orchard style in a grid or a allee for optimal care and fruit production. Outstanding small tree for large terra cotta pots in the Italian style that may be moved for winter protection in marginal areas.
