Punica






PUNICA GRANATUM.--Pomegranate. For planting against a southern-facing

wall this pretty shrub is well suited, but it is not sufficiently hardy

for the colder parts of the country. Frequently in the more favoured

parts of the country it reaches a height of 14 feet, with a

branch-spread of nearly as much, and is then, when in full flower, an

object of general admiration and of the greatest beauty. The flowers are

of a rich, bright scarlet colour, and well set off by the glossy, dark

green leaves. P. Granatum rubra flore-pleno is a decidedly ornamental

shrub, in which the flowers are of a bright scarlet, and perfectly

double. They grow satisfactorily in light, but rich soil.
