CITRUS

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.

Citrus (Algerian tangerine) 'Clemantine'

Fruit a little larger than ‘Dancy’, with fewer seeds. Ripens late fall into winter; remains on tree for months, staying juicy and sweet. Seems to develop full flavor in areas that are too cool for a good ‘Dancy’. Tree reaches 12 ft., semiopen with vertical, spreading, somewhat willowy branches. Usually bears light crops without another variety for pollination.
