Price: €4.47

20 seeds of Trifoliate orange

Poncirus trifoliata, var. Monstrosa (Flying Dragon)

from Botanical Garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria

 

Besides being interesting ornamental fruit tree, this variety of Trifoliate orange is the best rootstock for citrus plants. This rootstock grows well in different types of soil mixtures and can withstand very low temperatures. Therefore, it is the best rootstock for citrus, which will be planted in the ground in our cold climate.

This deciduous tree is a close relative of Citrus. It bears small oranges that ripen in late autumn and the tree looks very decorative. If grown as an ornamental plant, it is desirable to regularly remove the sprouts coming out of the base. The plant tends to grow bushy and in order to have a single stem should be trimmed regularly. It will withstand at least -23°C and can be grown in the open ground (without winter protection ) almost everywhere in Bulgaria.

 Another valuable application of the trifoliate orange is the construction of hedges with it. Because of the huge and powerful spikes, well shaped and compressed hedges could stop even a snake, and the passage of larger animals and humans is virtually impossible.
