Poncirus trifoliata 'Flying Dragon'

The 'Flying Dragon' is a visually intriguing tree with twisted, thorny branches that create a unique and ornamental architecture. In spring, white flowers bloom on the branches, which turn into oranges later in the season. The tree is deer-resistant and can grow up to 8 ft in 10 years. In fall, the orange fruit hanging from the branches adds an extra appeal. The fruit has a tart taste, similar to a lemon, and is commonly used for making marmalade. The tree can be shaped to create unique structures and can be used as a specimen or for hedges. It thrives well in Zones 5 through 10B, but due to shipping restrictions, it cannot be shipped to California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona.
