Flowering Pomegranate

Here are a few flowers pictures of Flowering Pomegranate (Punica granatum) also known as Noshi Shibari or double flower pomegranate. I brought the cutting of this plant from Gomal University D.I.Khan in 2000. As I plant the cutting in inappropriate place i.e under my grapes plant, therefore it took 9 years to start flowering. This plant generally produces flowers in most part of the year, but my plant stop flowering in July. It produces vibrant red colored blooms, which turn white with passage of time. This pomegranate does not bear fruits. My camera failed to focus on these flowers, that is why the pictures you see here are not very clear.

We have this here too and I love them as they seem to attract a lot of ladybirds.
