Valuable for its ornamental value as it blooms all summer long. Easily grown from cuttings. This is how I started mine. Getting it to fruit is hit or miss as this pomegranate is grown more for its flowers than the fruit. It will occasionally put on a fruit but far from the rate of those grown for eating. This could be because the petals are so thick it may have a hard time being pollinated. Hand pollination may help though I've never tried.
