Showy all year long. Visual highlights include orange-red blossoms in late spring and golden-yellow foliage in fall. Vibrant flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Glossy green leaves are long and slender. Large red fruit has compartments full of soft seeds. Sweet and tangy flesh is ideal for juicing, but can also be eaten fresh.

It is a gift for a family friend who wants a pom tree in his yard. So as a birthday present for him, I purchased this tree. My neighbor has one like it and it is a prolific tree; I'm hopeful that this one will be as generous with her fruit and as pretty.

What winter protection is needed for the Wonderful Pomegranite in zone 7A?
Solomon M on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Here is a very good article about protecting/winterizing your fruit trees, no matter which zone you're in: //www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/winter-protection-fruit-trees
How can I keep the height below 10 feet? Zone 6B, going to grow in high tunnel.
Sadie on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pruning will probably be your best bet maintaining the overall height. If you are also growing the pomegranate in a large container, this may help keep the mature height smaller than it would be if planted in the ground.
I am in 6A and would need to grow this in a container. What size container would you recommend?
Mary L on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can start with a 10" container, and when the roots begin to reach the edge of the pot, it's time to "pot up". You can keep potting up in 4" increments until you reach a container size of 20' or 24", depending upon how large you want the tree to get, then air-prune the roots every few years to keep the tree that size without becoming rootbound and also to re-invigorate it.
can i get this as a dwarf?
miss p on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree is naturally very close to a dwarf size, 10 - 15' tall. You can easily prune it to keep it smaller than that.
I am in zone 7A and the plant from you now is about a 1 foot tall. I am concerned about the winter survival and left the plant in the pot. Can it be brought inside for the winter months? I did read the winterization article but really not sure how a small plant like this will do in the winter outside.
Ashik P on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Please plant your tree in the ground as soon as you can. The pot in which it was shipped is not meant to be a permanent home. By planting now, you'll give the roots a chance to become established, then you can mulch with 3-4 inches of straw or bark, protect it from any north wind, and the tree will be fine.
How do you grow pomagranet in a pot?
Virginia M H on May 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Size of the pot and pot preparation are the most important step. Make sure that is large enough for your plant to grow in for a few years limits the amount of replanting. The pot requires drainage holes in the bottom of the pot. You must drill 1/2 inch holes in the bottom of the pot. If you skip this step excess water will not drain properly and kill your plants. In addition you need 2 to 4 inches of rocks in the bottom of the pot also for drainage. Lastly use a good quality potting soil. All dirt is not the same. If you do these things growing in a pott is actually easy.
Which varieties of pomegranate are thornless?
Wendy D on Jun 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No thorns on my Wonderful Pomegranate!
are these trees from seeds?
frank g on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, they are grafted. This is a hybrid and would not produce a true-to-parent "Wonderful Pomegrate" if grown from seed.
Can I keep this in my garage over winter (zone 6a), or do I need to bring it inside?
Nathan M on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We're presuming it's in a container. You can wrap it in an old blanket and keep it in an unheated garage or shed, no need to bring it indoors. It needs to go dormant to complete the fruiting cycle.
I have a spot for this plant near sea water shore line. Is it salt tolerated?
yizhi l on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pomegranate trees are known to be somewhat tolerant of salt air, so as long as you are in the area of growing zones 7-10, the tree should do fine if properly cared for.
Is the wonderful pomegranite plant that you sell grown from seed or is it a cutting?
Sammy on May 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tree is grown from cuttings to ensure that it maintains the characteristics expected from the 'Wonderful' pomegranate variety.
is the Wonderful Pomegranate a actual tree or a vine?
Johnnie S on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a tree.

Nice but small
Honestly, I should have read the description a bit more. These are definitely small young plants. I am in zone 7a so ordered the smallest 10" trunk guard for winterizing per instruction. I am laughing as I know they will not fit on this as the plant is likely only 10" total (which is what they said so shame on me). It is a very narrow stem...maybe a 1/4" at best.

Arrives small, well packed, growing nicely
I ordered this in mid-may and mine was about 6-8 inches, packed well with enough dirt to cover the roots. I had to add more for the pot I'm starting it out in. I'm in Virginia, and while I could probably leave this out this coming winter, I plan to bring it in to see how it does.
I was worried at first because the "tree" is small and had a few leaves on it. My cats got ahold of it that night as I had left it in the sink in the pot so I could plant it the next day. They ate all of the leaves, mowed the poor little thing right down.
So I put it out on my deck regardless and it has grown 12-14 inch long branches with many small leaves, so I'm quite pleased that it survived the cats. I'm getting the hang of watering the thing, trying not to over water. I'm a little concerned because the trunk itself is quite thin and small and I'm worried that the branches, which are much longer and hang over, will break it. But it seems to be doing well. I'm very pleased with the purchase considering that the price isn't that much for it. And I was very happy with the order and shipment notifications provided by the nursery. I plan to order more items from Stark Bros later this year.

It's a really wonderful Pomegranate
This is quite honestly the most hardest and a really juicy breed of pomegranates that I have ever grown and had before. I just love ordering from this website and the support is spot on excellent every time whenever I have any questions Too.

Look great!
Just got two delivered today and both look great. Much bigger and more vibrant than I expected. I'll put these on our patio and maybe overwinter them in the garage, then put them out in the orchard in the Spring. They look too good for me to take a chance on rabbit and deer nibbling on them this young!
