‘Purple Sunset’ Pomegranate

The foliage is delicate and refined. The foliage typically emerges bronze-purple, becoming shiny bright green then turning a beautiful butter-yellow in autumn. The leaves were just emerging in late March. Flowers initiate in May in USDA Hardiness Zone 7, and as long as new growth is fostered, the flowers will continue into autumn.

Fruit measures about 1-1½ inches wide, and are continually forming.

Fruits of Purple Sunset are longer than they are wide, and eggplant-purple in color. They are quite colorful, and coupled with the orange flowers, would make a great Halloween item.
