Another rare, ornamental pomegranate cultivar with salmon-pink double flowers that have a lighter coloured edge of the petals. Any established plants will flower freely on any good 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 of 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. Another great cultivar, very rarely offered.
