Poncirus trifoliata 'Flying Dragon' (Contorted Bitter Orange)

Height: 3-6 feet
Spread: 3-6 feet
Light: Full sun
Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soil.
Description: Green twisted & contorted stems are heavily armed with thorns, providing terrific architectural interest throughout winter months. White spring flowers are followed by small, extremely bitter miniature oranges. Poncirus has naturalized in our area, so be careful planting around woodlands and other sensitive places. A unique centerpiece for containers, or a thorny hedge that can keep intruders at bay! "More effective than a good watchdog"-Dr. Michael Dirr
