In the old Convent garden I take care of there is an old pomegranate tree. This tree may have been planted by the Sisters of Mercy from Ireland shortly after 1865. After extensive pruning of surrounding shrubbery and trees, exposing the tree to more light it has bloomed for the first time that anyone can remember. The flowers are pale yellow!! Does anyone know what variety this might be . . . or is this a mutation of some sort?
