There are few plants more satisfying than the Ambrosia Pomegranate (Punica granatum 'Ambrosia')! It's a hardy shrub requiring little care, and yet displays a profusion of bright, orange blooms in spring that are a stand-out amid other garden choices!

Glossy green foliage creates a robust appearance through the summer months until the fall harvest provides the remarkable fruit it's most known for. Lovely as it dangles on the bush, the fruit consists of shiny, pink globes that encase a multitude of delicious, juicy seeds. In fact, Ambrosia produces the largest fruit of all the Pomegranates, up to three times the size of other varieties!

With sweet-tart flavored, purple-hued, fragrant juice, Ambrosia is a delicacy for all the senses. Suitable for eating directly from the bush, or used in a variety of culinary dishes, Pomegranates are a delicious choice and incredibly healthy. Latin for "apple of many seeds", each Pomegranate is chocked full of antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber. It's also shown to inhibit bad (LDL), cholesterol.

Planting and Application:

Ambrosia Pomegranate is a deciduous shrub with arching branches, naturally forming a dense bush with many outstanding ornamental landscaping features!
