Ambrosia Pomegranate is a fruit-bearing bush with ornamental features. Plant one near a doorway or as an accent for a perennial bed. Its ornamental qualities in spring make it an eye-catching choice for your landscape, and its fall harvest a sure conversation-starter.
There are few plants more satisfying than the Ambrosia Pomegranate. 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 its 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!
The Pomegranate is a fruit that has it all! A sweet/tart flavor to the purple-hued, fragrant juice, Ambrosia is a delicacy for all the senses. Suitable for eating directly from your bush, or used in a variety of culinary dishes, Pomegranates are a delicious choice that is also 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. Even the bark is said to have antibacterial qualities.
Ambrosia Pomegranate is a deciduous shrub with arching branches. It will reach a good height and spread, and is amenable to pruning if you so desire. With a little care, it can even be shaped into a tree form if you prefer.
Ambrosia is an adaptable plant in other ways as well, being tolerant of a variety of soil conditions and accepting of both hot and cold climates. It's even disease resistant and self-fruitful.
