    ​ Those are non-fruiting varieties. Kinda useless but still very pretty

      Very pretty. They look more like a peony or lisianthus than a crape myrtle to me.

        Smoky, I totally agree! Very beautiful and just fine if you only want them for ornamental (does such a thing exist) landscaping. In my opinion you can see the family resemblance between pomegranates and crepe myrtles. Shrink the poms a dozen times and expand the crepes a dozen times...... similarities will be evident.

          I have the same reddish flowering pomegranate. It was sold as wonderful pom by a local nursery but it never fruited in the last 8 years and I got to know last year that it is a flowering pom.

          Can we graft fruiting poms like Wonderful or Parfianka Pom into the flowering pom?
          Wish list: Alma, Black Mission, Conadria, Desert King, Green Ischia, LSU Gold, LSU Purple & Nero.

          I happen to think that the regular single flowers of fruiting pomegranate are almost as pretty as the double flowered ornamental varieties. So why not have one that produces edible fruit?
          That could just be me.

          Yes, of course you can.

            It depends on what you want. The flowering Pom season is longer than the one for a fruiting variety. For some reason, a few people on my street never eat their Pom fruit so a flowering would be less messy. But I am like you , hard to resist pretty and tasty all in one
