“What makes pomegranate flowers unusual is their size, to two inches wide, and their color, a glowing neon vermillion. Flower color varies by cultivar and can be orange, yellow, pink, or white, but the typical color is an intense orange-red. The flowers have five to seven crinkly, crepe-like petals and are very attractive to hummingbirds.” Excerpted from “What’s Wrong With My Fruit Garden?” by David Deardorff and Kathryn Wadsworth.
