Common Pomegranate (An-shih-liuDadima) Punica granatum-  Shrubby bush with narrow willow-like leaves and vivid scarlet 2in. blooms, which mature into fruits the size of an orange, prized for their juicy seeds.  The fruit itself also gained symbolic and religious significance in several cultures.  The Chinese considered the pomegranate one of the three blessed fruits (the others were citron and the peach).  Its many seeds symbolized numerous male offspring running about the world earning fame, fortune and glory.  In ancient Greek mythology, it is involved in a story of the seasons, the tale of  Persephone and her abduction by Hades. The fruit was used in the annual cermonies reenacting Persephone's trials and assumed mystic properties.
On a more prosaic note, pomegranate juice is said to aid stomach problems and is used in the production of Grenadin syrup.  Hardy to 10F (-17.7C); height: 16 - 25 ft.
