Selected for its narrow, columnar habit and unique four-sided “tower” effect, Illuminati Tiny Tower mock orange features hundreds of fragrant white flowers along dramatically upright branches, each nestled within dark green foliage.  Peppy Le Pom ornamental pomegranate is a dwarf shrub that blooms early and all summer long, peppered with bright orange blooms that give way to small, ornamental fruit.
