How to Use Gissarskii Rozovyi Pomegranate in the Landscape

Pomegranates are beautiful landscape plants in their own right. Versatile Pomegranates can be grown naturally as a lush, bushy plant. Use a row of them to define your property line. They make a wonderful backdrop in Victory Gardens. You might even add them to a mixed garden border to pull "double duty" as an Edible Ornamental.

Remove the lowest branches to create a tree-form plant. They look charming next to a child's playhouse or repeated in your patio plantings. These days, people across the country are waking up to the winning good looks of edible plants. With their outstanding pale fruit, Gissardskii Rozovyi makes a fabulous addition to a "Moon Garden" for nighttime viewing.

Make the most of both your sunshine and moonlight with this variety!

If your winters are too cold for in-ground growing, add them to large pots or grow bags on top of a wheeled caddy. Once the nights start cooling off, wheel it to a cool, but bright spot for wintertime shelter. Keep dormant container plants on the dry side in winter. They may lose their leaves during this time. Bring them back outside for another beautifully productive growing season.

While self-pollinating, you'll get a much larger fruit set with more than one variety nearby. Add several of our other varieties for a longer harvest of antioxidant-rich superfruit.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant this low-maintenance Pomegranate in full sunlight or partial shade. They need at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. Their root systems need well-drained soils that don't stay wet for long. Create a raised bed or container to elevate the plant if you have poorly drained soil. Add a three-inch layer of mulch spread to three feet around the canopy. Always pull mulch away from the trunk for proper air circulation. Slow-release organic fertilizer for fruiting plants can be applied according to the directions on the package. Follow both the timing schedule and application rates for best results.

An even application of water during fruit production protects against split fruit. Keep the soil evenly moist, never wet. Container plants need careful water their whole life. During winter dormancy, water once a month at most, and ensure the excess water drains quickly.

In late winter, prune to open the canopy. Eliminate crossing branches and branches growing into the canopy.
