Chaenomeles speciosa 'Old Homestead'

A Raintree selection! Propagated from cuttings taken from a long-abandoned homestead, this reliable farmer's workhorse brought both beauty and bounty to every hard-working home. Branches can be forced in late winter, to bring cheery pops of salmon-pink flowers indoors. The astringent yellow fruits in fall provide natural pectin to help homestead jams and jellies take shape.

Flowering quinces are a group of very winter hardy, thorny, dense, deciduous shrubs covered with an abundance of beautiful flowers early each spring. This is a great group of edible ornamentals that can also be used as hedge plants. For heavier yields, plant more than one variety.

At last I found what I had been searching for

Plants arrived in great shape, starting to leaf out, an old man lived a few miles from us, each spring the hedge by his house would bloom, it was that glorious coral, I searched for that variety, could not find it, then there it was on your website, thank you for saving it.
