Answer: You may very well have a pomegranate bush (Punica granatum 'Chico'). Some varieties of Punica bear fruit, but yours is strictly ornamental. Provide full sunshine and only occasional deep watering during the growing season for best performance. Punica is easy to grow, tolerating extremely alkaline soil and great summer heat with no adverse affects. Prune your shrub back to promote new flowering wood. As it matures it should provide double orange-red flowers over a long season.
