inosculate/pleach three pomegranate varieties?
I have limited space in my south Louisiana garden and have three 2-3 yr old potted varieties of pom: wonderful, sweet, and angel red.
All have been trained into "tree" shape with solitary trunks 5-7 ft tall.
I am considering planting all three in the same hole and weaving the trunks to form one tree that should "fuse", properly termed inosculation, I believe.
I can find no info on this technique for poms, but many fruit bearing tees do well, including figs.
Besides the question of whether this will work for poms generally, do the three varieties have similiar habits that would play well together? I am hoping for a 12-20 ft tree.
Alternatively, I suppose I could just plant them close together and not weave, going for more of a 3 legged crepe myrtle or legustrum type shape. I enjoy experimenting , though.
