Cameo Flowering Quince
Chaenomeles speciosa 'Cameo'
This delicate-looking beauty is grown for its lovely soft apricot and pink-colored double flowers that cover the bush in early spring. It produces an abundance of small quinces prized for jelly when pollinized by another flowering quince. It is thornless and compact, reaching a height and spread of about 4 feet.
Japanese flowering quinces are a group of very winter hardy, disease resistant, deciduous shrubs covered with an abundance of beautiful flowers early each spring. The varieties we offer each follow up with a small crop of nutritious fruit with a pineapple and citrus flavor that can be used to make jellies or syrups. This is a great group of edible ornamentals. For heavier yields, plant more than one variety.
