The Pomegranate is a small deciduous tree, native of Persia, with bright scarlet and orange-colored flowers and ornamental subacid-flavored fruit. It forms a very pretty low tree or shrub when in flower in early Summer and again when in fruit in the Fall. The double-flowered variety makes an excellent bush or hedge.

Any good garden soil suits it as it is easily grown if given good cultivation.

Propagate by cuttings, layers or suckers in Autumn after the leaves fall.

Punica granatum.
