Toyo Nishiki Flowering Quince
This showy variety can offer white, pink and even magenta flowers on the same branch! Japanese flowering quinces are a group of very winter hardy, deciduous shrubs covered with an abundance of beautiful flowers early each spring. Branches are wonderful to bring inside and force for late winter blooms. The varieties we offer each follow up with a small crop of nutritious fruit with a pineapple/citrus flavor that can be used to make jellies or syrups. This is a great edible ornamental!
Flower buds develop on year-old and older wood. They make effective, thorny hedge plants, as well as early-flowering food for pollinizing insects. For heavier yields, plant more than one variety.
