The Orange Blossom Special Dwarf Pomegranate from the Southern Living Plant Collection is the perfect selection for anyone looking for a unique container plant that is sure to draw attention. Growing only 2-3′ feet tall as well as wide, the Orange Blossom makes itself at home in a decorative pot, but is also just as comfortable in a full-sun garden. The foliage produced is delicate and elegant, and contrasts beautifully with the fiery bell-shaped blossoms. The stunningly vivid blooms are small, yet pack a punch, and prove to be impossible to ignore against the glossy green leaves. One of the most abundantly flowering shrubs available, this Pomegranate blooms from summer to the first frost. Fruit is produced continuously and although it is inedible, it is an attractive green and red that is similar in appearance to a slightly muted honeycrisp apple. Once established in moist, well-drained acidic soil, this hardy little plant proves to be nearly maintenance-free, as well as drought resistant.
Spacing Your Orange Blossom Special Dwarf Pomegranate
For a seamless planting, space your Orange Blossom Special Dwarf Pomegranate 2 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 3+ feet apart.
