Description

Super long-blooming and productive | Begins fruiting just a year or two from planting

Four months of blooms and bushels of delectable fruit make Punica Crimson Sky™ Pomegranate a must have for the sunny to lightly shaded garden and fine containers.

The big red flowers of Punica Crimson Sky™ Pomegranate begin in early summer and continue into fall, standing out brilliantly against olive-green foliage that is large and glossy. Even if you have no interest in harvesting the fruit, Punica Crimson Sky™ Pomegranate is worth growing just for the magnificent flowers.

But fruit follows the blooms, ready to harvest by late fall. It is medium sized, orange-red, and packed with delicious seeds. You can expect 20 pounds or so from a mature shrub—and Punica Crimson Sky™ Pomegranate begins fruiting the first or second year after you plant it, so you don't have to wait long. It is self-fertile, so you don't need another pomegranate for pollination.

Punica Crimson Sky™ Pomegranate is generally untroubled by pests and diseases. It thrives in full sun to part shade in windy, moist coastal settings, the dry desert, and everything in between. Hardy to -12° Fahrenheit, it reaches just 5 to 6 feet high and 4 to 5 feet wide after 10 years' growth. Needs well-drained soil.
