There are only two species in the genus Punica, and only one is likely to be seen in Woodland.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a thorny, deciduous tree from the Mediterranean region. It usually grows about 15 to 35 feet tall and has a lifespan of up to 200 years. It has two types of flowers on the same tree: male flowers and "perfect" flowers (containing both male and female parts in the same flower). Pomegranate trees are ranked 2 out of 10 on the Ogren Plant Allergy Scale, indicating that they are very unlikely to cause hay fever. Pomegranate trees are planted in Pioneer Park and as a street tree on Clover Street.
