Punica granatum 'Chico' - Pomegranate (dwarf, double flowered)


  • Dwarf variety; rarely offered ornamental pomegranate cultivar with small, double scarlet flowers and with a compact habit, although larger than the "var nana". Any established plants will flower freely on a fully sunny position and even on poor soil. It prefers a hot position, against a south facing wall for example, but will flower in a good protected sunny position (does not require as much heat as the fruiting varieties as very few fruits will develop from the flowers on this variety).  The pomegranate is believed to have originated in the area from Iran east to northern India, but has been cultivated around the Mediterranean for so long (several millennia) that its true native range is not accurately known.

  • We have excellent quality, 8-10cm tall starter plants on offer.
