From flower to fruit.... (Best on black)

Pomegranates (Punica granatum) require full sun to grow and thrive. This bush typically grows from 12 to 20 feet tall and nearly the same in spread.
You should plant the tree in the sunniest and warmest place of your yard if possible.
Flowering occurs from midspring into fall.Young pomegranate trees (Punica granatum) produce scattered blossoms during their first few years the trees flower in earnest once they reach 3 to 4 years old.
It takes five to seven months for fruit to become mature and the tree itself needs two to three years before it bears more than a couple of fruits
Gorgeous on Black! The flower looks a bit like the passion fruit flower. One of these days I'm going to buy some pomegranates!

That flower looks like it belongs on that hat. Nice setup. It is good to know how to grow Pomegranates. I know they grow in my part of the world and I've thought of planting a tree.
