Mespilus germanica 'Royal' — Medlar
)New Gooseberry 'Jahns Prairie'
Strangely impossible to ﬁnd in this country, this beautiful tree is tailor-made for the American garden. Structure is picturesque—low and wide-spreading, with lovely crooked brances, rarely exceeding 20 feet in as many years. Masses of heavenly white to light pink ﬂowers in early summer are followed by unusual 1½ inch fruits that are a favorite in Europe for jelly. Fruits can be eaten out-of-hand when soft; ﬂavor is somewhat like applesauce. Bareroot. Z 5-8 | early summer | sun | H: 8-10', W: 8-10'

Pomegranate Favorite™ )New (Punica granatum.) The hardiest Pomegranate we have ever grown is also one of the most delicious, with small, exceedingly sweet pale red fruit beginning just a season or two after planting. But its primary value may be ornamental, for its bright orange-scarlet blooms are abundant and lovely, continuing for several months on this compact, well- branched shrub. Untroubled by pests and diseases, this selffertile shrub has survived temperatures below 10 degrees F without damage, and is worthy of a place of honor in the garden. 1-gallon container.
