This is a well know variety that does not produce fruit. Sometimes known as Punica granatum 'Legrellei', Punica granatum 'Madame Legrelle' is grown solely for is ornamental salmon pink double flowers. The flowers are much larger than the fruiting varieties. All pomegranates can be pruned to create more compact dense foliage and if done at the right time of year, increased flowering. A deciduous large shrub or small tree reaching a maximum of 3 metres.
Other ornamental varieties we have are Punica granatum 'Nana', a dwarf variety often used as compact low hedging. This plant produces flowers throughout the year and has small compact ornamental fruit, even when trimmed as a hedge.
