This citrus tree is just as wild and interesting as its name suggests. Flying Dragon is a trifoliate breed which only means that it produces leaves in trios. When it comes to unique texture interest few can hold a candle to the charming chaos of Dragon's corkscrew limbs. The spines that cover its branches are as sharp as a dragon's fangs and make this shrub a wonderful privacy screen. If you're looking for a protective barrier to keep deer and other unwanted guests at a healthy distance you've found a reliable sentinel in this cultivar.But fear not, this Bitter Orange isn't all bite. In spring it opens dove white flowers which release a citrus aroma which could soothe any savage beast. Not to mention its small, cheery fruits which are bright, fragrant and guaranteed conversation starters.

Its fruits are edible, but unless you really love sour flavor we suggest not eating them raw. Instead try candying the rinds or using them in jams. Caring for the tree is easy as its quite pest and disease free and tolerates heat and drought beautifully. These trees are cold hardy to -10°F.
