Punica granatum 'Wonderful'

This 8-foot bush offers brighter flowers, bigger fruits, and terrific adaptability to just about any conditions.
Big crimson fruits ripen in late fall on this terrific overachiever. The finest quality, largest, and most highly colored of all pomegranates (and in this ornamental family, that's really saying something!), this wonderful plant grows quickly into an 8-foot bush. It thrives under just about any conditions, from windy, moist coastal settings to the still, dry, hot desert!

Site in a sheltered southern or eastern location (a walled patio is ideal). Fruit will set in all locations, but will open ripen and become edible in warm climates. Needs well-drained soil. Cannot ship to AZ.

Planting:

Plants are tolerant of a wide range of soils from sandy to heavy, poor to fertile, acid to alkaline, as long as the soil drains well. However, they perform best in a good, moisture retentive, well-drained soil. Full sun will give best flowering, although they grow quite well in partial shade.


Maintenance:

Water during periods of drought. Pruning, while seldom needed, should be done in late winter. Plants will grow without any supplemental fertilizing in all but poor soils.

Nevertheless, they will respond well to fertilizer which can be applied in early spring and again every 6 weeks. The fruit, which is actually a berry, follows the flowers and changes from yellow to a yellow-red as it matures in September and October.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.

Impeccable Quality and Value – We Guarantee It!

At Wayside Gardens, “pedigreed plants” and “root strength” have always been watchwords. The Wayside Gardens impeccable plant quality begins with selecting only the finest new product offerings with improved plant features and numerous advantages for our gardening customers. These improved plant selections are then grown to our exacting quality standards by garden industry professionals. This produces superior plants with well developed root systems and healthy, vigorous plant growth habits. That is why we proudly guarantee all Wayside Gardens' products to perform as advertised, being of superior quality, true to type, and shipped properly.

Larger Containers & Well Established Root Systems

We use larger containers and grow bigger plants than other nurseries, leading to greater root strength. Where appropriate, Wayside Gardens propagates our plants vegetatively rather than from seed, to ensure the plants possess the correct form and are true to variety, like a true double form, as opposed to the single or semi-double forms that may result from seed propagation. Because we employ only the finest and most technologically advanced plant growing methods, you can be confident in receiving healthy plants ready to burst forth in glorious growth in your garden.
