Unique, Cold Hardy Orange Grows Anywhere

Why The Hardy Orange 'Flying Dragon'?

The Hardy Orange, also known as the Flying Dragon Trifoliate Orange, is one of the most unique fruit varieties available. Its twisted stems are contorted in different directions with curved, claw-like thorns, giving the illusion of dragons in flight.

Plus, the Flying Dragon is simple to grow. Despite its rarity and exotic looks, the Hardy Orange does well in containers, even pruned in bonsai fashion. This Plant's design changes from wicked-like in the winter when its large thorns are exposed – to a soft flowering plant in the spring, quickly followed by colorful, fragrant oranges. While these oranges aren't recommended to eat, since they're small, tart and heavily seeded, they are great for cooking or making orangeade!

Although it's often used as an accent or in a container, this interesting shrub is a perfect option for a hedge - with its long, curved thorns, it's perfect for creating privacy and deterring intruders, while still adding beauty to the landscape.

And it withstands temperatures as low as -10 degrees. The Hardy Orange is a tough plant that does well in both sunny and shady areas. It's drought-tolerant and barely needs pruning, so it's a time-saver with virtually no upkeep required, needing only a bit of sun and water to thrive.

    I bought a Flying Dragon

    I bought a Flying Dragon Trifoliate Orange from FGT and kept it in a pot for a year before putting it in-ground in late 2019. It was shaded by a nearby pear tree, but has prospered. The first two winters, in Zone 5B with at least two nights down to -22F with wind chill, it lost a couple of top inches, but since then has not lost any to the winters. This year, 2024, it has blossomed and fruited heavily for the first time. See photos. It now is over 6' tall!

    Hardy? How about Hardly...

    Still alive since I planted it in 2020, but it hasn't grown an inch. Very disappointed, but not surprised.
