  • Latin name: Punica granatum
  • Common name: Pomegranate
  • Characteristics: Deciduous shrub, edible red fruit in autumn, summer flowers, spreading habit, narrow green leaves, low maintenance, self-pollinating
  • Plant advice: Your pomegranate shrub will thrive in a position that benefits from access to full sun. Use a well-drained soil composed of Chalk, Loam or Sand. Tolerant of a range of pH, but will prefer neutral / slightly acidic soil of 5.5 – 7.0pH. Water deeply once a week, or more often during the warmest months. Hardy down to -5°C; should be grown outdoors during the summertime only and kept protected when temperatures drop. Suitable as a patio container plant, or for a greenhouse bed.
  • Low maintenance, will only require an annual trimming back. Prune in late winter / early spring; remove damaged, bent, diseased or otherwise unwanted branches and shoots.

Punica Granatum is a small deciduous tree / large shrub with a spreading habit that can reach an ultimate height of around 1.5 meters, and a similar spread. Striking scarlet red flowers will emerge in the summer, to then be followed by round edible fruit. Its narrowly oblong green leaves will turn to warm bronze and yellow tints come autumn.

The pomegranate tree is often cultivated for its tasty fruit in warmer climates, but in the UK is typically grown as an ornamental shrub or specimen tree. Please note that the fruit’s outer peel and stems may not be suitable for consumption.

Please Note: When purchasing plants please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only - The plant will be supplied in a growers pot.
