Punica granatum 'Nana' (Dwarf Pomegranate) – This is a semi-deciduous to evergreen (mild climates) dwarf shrub is an ornamental form of the fruiting pomegranate. It typically only grows to 3 feet tall, though older plants are noted around Santa Barbara 5 to 6 feet tall. Its slender stems hold attractive glossy narrow green 1 inch long leaves and dark orange-red flowers in abundance at branch tips during the summer, followed by 2 inch wide ornamental red fruits that remain on the plant through winter. These fruit are technically edible but are a bit too sour to really be considered palatable, so are best for looking at on the plant for the extended period they remain. Plant in full sun to light shade (sun best) with occasional to little irrigation - this is a drought tolerant shrub! It is nearly evergreen in mild climates and tolerates alkaline conditions, wind, heat and frost. It is reportedly hardy to 5°F, so useful in gardens in USDA zones down to 7b. Makes a great small hedge and can be sheared and maintained as small as 2 feet tall or use as a small specimen or a container plant - excellent for bonsai work and the flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies.
