Citrus (Calamondin) 'Variegata'

Variegated Calamondin
Evergreen, Edible fruit, Trees, Decorative fruit or berries


As landscaping plants, citrus offer year-round attractive form and glossy deep green foliage; also bear fragrant flowers and decorative fruit in season. If you want quality fruit, your choice of varieties will depend on the total amount of heat available through the fruit-developing period (need varies according to type) and on the winter cold in your zone.

Citrus flowers attract bees.
