Crimson and Gold Flowering Quince
Chaenomeles x superba 'Crimson and Gold'
Cut the arching, flowering stems of this dynamite dwarfing quince, loaded with masses of crimson flowers sporting central clusters of cheery yellow stamens, to make striking bouquets from March to May. Then later, harvest the aromatic, green fruit that ripens to yellow and make wonderful preserves. The compact variety stays only 3'-5' tall and wide.
Rugged, dense, fast-growing and drought-tolerant once established. Wonderful thorny addition to hedges. For heavier yields, plant more than one variety.
