Punica granatum “Nana” – Dwarf Pomegranate

We grew this Punica granatum “Nana” from seed and it is now probably four years old.  We have two plants, one planted in the garden and this one which is in the greenhouse.  In previous years they have both been out in the big bad world for most of the year and subsequently have struggled through the winter and valiantly rallied in the summer.  After listening/reading/eavesdropping on a conversation that recommended a purely institutional life I planted one in a “proper” pot and have kept it in the greenhouse.  The plant outside looks insignificant, the indoor specimen is full of life and flower.  As far as a scientific experiment goes there can be little argument.  There is one thing that worries me, does this mean that the pomegranates are dwarf or just the plant.
