Overview

The Pomegranate grows in zones 7-10.
Best known for the antioxidant-rich fruit it produces, the pomegranate shrub is widely grown throughout the Mediterranean region. Its tubular blooms begin to appear in late May and early June, providing nice spring color, while the fruit ripens from September to October. The fruit is a bit unusual, as the only edible parts are the jewel-like arils and seeds found inside.

This specimen loves warmer climates, growing best in hardiness zones 7–10. It can either be left to grown naturally as a shrub or pruned and grown as a small tree.
