PEPPY LE POM™ Pomegranate

Zone: 7, 8, 9 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 3-4' Width/Spread: 3'

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.


Light: Needs full sun to thrive, it will not produce the impressive floral show it’s known for if situated in a spot that gets less than six hours of direct exposure to the sun.

Soil: Any well-draining soil is sufficient.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Can be fertilized with a granular fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs in the springtime.

Pruning: Can be trimmed to shape in the early spring.

Other: In cool climates, you can grow it in a container and bring it indoors for the winter. Place it in a spot that gets bright direct light and good air circulation. Over the winter, if your plant isn’t looking its best, be sure to move it back outside in the spring. Its recovery will be astonishing.
