I think there's a pretty good chance it could come back.

Do you know what variety of pomegranate it is supposed to be?

That's a good quote by Bill, so true.



It's an "A.C. Sweet Pomegranate" https://onegreenworld.com/product/a-c-sweet-pomegranate/

There's a tiny bud on it today! Maybe all is not lost!

Hi Steve! Thanks for the reply and, yes, it does seem to have a bud at the base of the trunk.

The variety is A.C. Sweet Pomegranate. However, if it was grafted, I don't think it will be A.C. Sweet anymore. I cut it way back in my search for green wood.

From that photo I'd say that new growth looks very promising, and I'll bet it'll rebound fine.

I was reading a little bit about that variety, and it sounds great. It said it has soft seeds, and I'm still waiting to see if my soft seeded varieties will come back this year. I've heard the soft seeded varieties aren't as cold hardy, but I'm hoping I see a little bud on mine soon also.

I was just thinking about pomegranate propagation Karl, and as far as I know, pomegranates are usually propagated by rooting the cuttings instead of being grafted, so I bet your pomegranate will grow back as the original variety!

Some tiny wildlife in the mini ponds!

I think the water strider on the left found a snack and the dragonfly is laying eggs on the plant in the water!
