It sits on the bench naked. I don't do anything for winter storage on this tree or most of my others. The only thing I do is move the ficus and bougainvillea's under the benches or into a outdoor room where I display my pots for sale. Typically we get a few nights- maybe 15-20 where it gets to 32 or so for a hour or two. Once in a blue moon we'll get into the high 20's for a little bit overnight.

your absolutely right! My twisted Trunk Pom started to turn color VERY early even though it was in a green house, Long before any of my other trees, at first I thought it was getting overwatered (because they were yellow leaves) but it was the decrease in daylight that triggered it because the green house was nice and warm. Then it dawned on me "oh thats just the fall color change"-duh, but i have never dealt with a Pomegranate so my learning curve was still steep. The semi-tropicals can be tricky for a guy who's only ever dealt with true Tropicals, or full-on deciduous trees.
