at Pomegranate (Punica 'Parfianka') it states that Parfianka is also sold as Garnet Sash.

I'm not sure if that is supposed to mean that Parfianka and Garnet Sash are synonyms for the same pomegranate. If so, that could be an error according to Ed Laivo Former Sales and Marketing Director For Dave Wilson Nursery (comment #3 in this discussion: http://www.bobdunn.com/dunnbob/wordpress/2011/02/17/goodby-t...)
also the description for the two pomegranates vary at the Dave Wilson website:
http://www.davewilson.com/product-information/product/pomegr...

The Dave Wilson tag on the plant I bought doesn't say the plant is a Dwarf Pomegranate though I have read on some websites that Parfianka is naturally dwarf. At the Dave Wilson site it says of Parfianka "Maintain at any height with summer pruning."

Thank you, Angele. I'll create a separate entry for Garnet Sash and remove its name from the Parfianka entry.

I can remove the Garnet Sash for the Also Sold As and add a note like Ed Laivo mentioned, that nurseries are selling it with this name but that they are not the same. I'll edit out the dwarf too.

Actually, an entry for Garnet Sash already exists in our database, so whoever added it as an also-sold-as name to the other entry didn't delete the original entry. Now it's no longer linked to the Parfianka entry. Thank you very much for this report.
