Peppy Le Pom™ Pomegranate

Peppy Le Pom™ ornamental pomegranate is a dwarf shrub that blooms early and all summer long, peppered with jaw-droppingly bright orange blooms. They give way to small ornamental fruits – the few seeds inside are edible, but not the primary reason we selected this plant. Its petite frame makes it ideal for use as a container plant, and in cold climates, it can be brought indoors for winter and grown as a houseplant. Warm climates can enjoy it as a dwarf shrub with a wide range of applications in the landscape.

SKU: 61368 Plant Type:

Not finicky about pH; any well-drained soil will do. Trim to shape as needed in early spring. If moving indoors for winter, provide bright light and good air circulation. If plant suffers in winter, moving it back outdoors when it becomes warm enough in spring will help it make a rapid recovery.
