About This Plant

Sun/part shade. Deciduous, with glossy leaves and good yellow fall color. Big red blooms appear in spring and throughout the warm season, yielding large, edible fruit.

Pomegranate is an old-fashioned garden plant well suited to south-central Texas, eventually growing to a large multitrunked shrub. Spiny branches require careful handling.

Pomegranate tolerates poor soils and is moderately drought tolerant. Dwarf varieties are available.

Maintenance

Prune to remove deadwood and crossing branches; can be trained into a hedge, and orchard, or an ornamental tree, but generally it is grown with 3-5 trunks. Gloves are a good idea as the branches have spiny tips. Pomegranate is a prolific fruit producer, although proper quality requires some oversight.
