Punica granatum, var. nana

The 'pomegranate' is relatively common in South Europe, where it is grown for it's fruit or even as a hedge. It is only hardy in the mildest areas where it's bright scarlet flowers are very striking, specially after a warm summer. The dwarf form, var. nana, makes a tight mound of evergreen foliage, dotted in September and October with bright red flowers.
