One of the most loved species of cultivated Bonsai, the Pomegranate has a rich historical and mythical lore.
The leaves are opposite or sub-opposite, glossy, and narrow oblong. The Pomegranate flowers are bright red. The Socotran Pomegranate has pink (not red) flowers. Pomegranates are drought tolerant.
If too wet, root decay results from fungal infestation. The Pomegranate is tolerant of moderate frost, down to about 14º F. The name Punica is from the Phoenicians who were active in broadening its cultivation, partly for religious reasons.
