Persephone's Garden is a garden filled with different kinds of plants and flowers. The most prominent fruit there is the pomegranate.
Percy Jackson, Grover Underwood, and Annabeth Chase go through the garden whilst on their way to Hades' Palace on their quest. Grover is really tempted to eat a big juicy pomegranate due to its strong tart smell, even though Annabeth warned him to keep walking through the garden, but fortunately Percy pulls him away.
In Percy's dream, Nico di Angelo is seen trapped in a bronze jar by Otis and Ephialtes. Percy sees five pomegranate seeds by Nico's feet which Nico's half sister, Hazel Levesque confirms are from the garden of their step-mother, Persephone.
According to Percy, Persephone's Garden was the strangest garden he had ever seen.
There were multi-colored mushrooms, poisonous scrubs, and weird luminous plants that grew without sunlight. There were also precious jewels that seemed to compensate the lack of flowers, such as clumps of raw diamonds and piles of rubies as big as his fist. Last but not least, there were Medusa's garden statues of petrified children, satyrs, and centaurs, standing here and there and all smiling grotesquely.
In the center of the garden was an orchard of pomegranate trees, their orange blossoms neon bright in the dark, and the fruit had an overwhelmingly sweet tart smell.
