Poncirus trifoliata is very similar to a citrus and is also called the Citrus trifoliata.
The Poncirus trifoliata is very hardy and can be planted in the ground without any problems or can be left outside in a tub.
We also have the Poncirus trifoliata Flying Dragon in our range. This species grows in round forms and the thorns are also all bent so that the whole looks erratic.
The Poncirus trifoliata is in bloom in April and May with large white strong smelling flowers. Then first green and later yellow-colored citrus-like fruits appear.
These fruits are not edible, not that they become ill, but few people appreciate a petroleum flavor.
So it stays with the look and the nice smell of the flowers that you get back from this bush.
Apart from the fruits and the pleasant smell of this plant, the branches are also worth seeing.
These grow quite erratic, round and are olive green in color, later they turn yellow / orange.
As a divide, the Poncirus trifoliata makes an almost impregnable fortress of your garden because of its sharp branches.
This wild lemon is good in a tub because it grows slowly.
Prune in early spring if necessary. Can also be cultivated as a trunk by keeping a main stem free of side branches.
Do not cut back the lateral branches at the desired height. In winter, if in a tub, do not give too much water and do not give more fertilizer.
Winter hardiness zone 6a (-25ºC).
