Plant from smriti van Jaipur. It is Punica plant But flower entirely different. Photo Taken on-5.5.2008


Yes, a double-flowered form of Punica granatum. These generally produce little or no fruit, however.


yes sir It never produce fruit. Is it variety ?


I believe that the double-flowered form is called P. granatum ‘Flore-Pleno’. There is also a bicolored form with a white edge.


Yes it is Punica granatum. Double petals are not difficult to encounter


Punica granatum var. nana is a dwarf shrub producing small flowers and small fruits. It is medicinal and also traded in the market.

A rather strange tree, which does better than others in dry climate but the largest fruits I had seen was on trees growing on almost marshy ground in Kashmir. 


Absolutely …, It is a fruit that grows best in drier areas. My late father was a person who planted every kind of fruit tree here. Pomegranate is a bit of a failure here in the sense, though we get the fruits, it ripens during the monsoon and is not so good, they do turn red and are sweet, but very small and they crack up when mature, sometimes even before they ripen. 


beautiful flower.  Yes, it grows well in drier areas where the rainfall is less.   It does well in soil with good drainage.  The flowers are very beautiful and in Mumbai I have seen fisherwomen with their hair decorated with this flower. 


Here is another example of gender confusion: Punica granatum!!! but it is accepted this way!! 


I would make a page listing all such special encounters !!! Many thanks for bringing such exceptions to notice,

The second picture shows the flower
In the third picture the pomegranate shows black specks which are marks of pecking by Parrots. They love Pomegranate 

Punica granatum of Lythraceae family just to correct the spelling.
By the way this is one of the many examples of accepted error in the name, or a very complicated nomenclature. The genus of species and generic name doesnt match but it is accepted.


The genus of species and generic name doesnt match in gender I meant. 


The black spots are marks of pecking of the fruit-fly that lays eggs inside the fruit. This infestation is common on guava and p’granate.

is it pomogranet? 


Yes …


Here is one Anar-shrub I found in Santiago de Chile in March 2010. It was just a shrub and had many fruits. In India I have seen big trees but not shrubs carrying fruits.

It is not uncommon in India to see shrubby Punica granatum (Anar), especially in hilly areas where it grows almost wild.

There is a saying which goes like ” Ek Anar sou Bimar”. A medicinally important fruit.

Here is from my collection from Manali
Which is the correct family Lythraceae or Punicaceae?

Thanks for the information, but somewhere back in time I told you that few of your informations were wrong. Please try to follow good book
for latin, it will be for your own good.
In latin seed is called ‘semine’.
Granatum should be based on pollen and not on seeds as granum stands for pollen grain and not seed grains.
