Question of the Week – Hickory nut

Posted by romeethredge on December 5, 2014

Last week I had a photo of a Hickory nut and shuck. Pecans are related to Hickorys.

“Property owners should recognize their beauty and value their presence in naturalized areas. Although extremely beautiful and valuable to wildlife, hickories develop a deep taproot and are difficult to transplant. Only recently has the nursery industry developed pots that enable hickories to be grown from seed, which will make them more widely available in the future.”

This week I have a bloom that I want you to identify. I took this photo on November 4th.

    Is it an out of season pomgranate bloom?
