Persephone's Garden is a garden owned by Persephone 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 are multi-colored mushrooms, poisonous scrubs, and weird luminous plants that grow without sunlight. There are 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. Medusa's garden statues of petrified children, satyrs, and centaurs, stand here and there and smiling grotesquely. In the center of the garden is an orchard of pomegranate trees, their orange blossoms neon bright in the dark, and the fruit had an overwhelmingly sweet tart smell. Skeletal trees grow from marble basins. Flower beds overflowed with golden plants and gemstones. There are also crystal trees and flowers that bloom bloodred and ghost white. Beautiful subterranean trees glow in the dark. White birch trees soar into the air like frozen ghosts. The paths are sculpted with rubies and topaz. A brook wended through the middle of the garden. A dark veranda overlooks the garden with a silver throne, a table, and a shadow fountain in the corner. A pair of thrones, one bone and one silver, sat on the balcony with a view of the Fields of Asphodel. A breakfast table with flower arrangements also sits on the balcony.
