Description

The Red Flowering Quince signals the end of winter with an explosion of vibrant, coral-red flowers that coat each and every branch of this stunning shrub. Flowering Quince are one of the very first pops of color in the garden. They bring cheer to the dreary, chilly winter landscape and announce the imminent arrival of spring warmth.

Flowering Quince generally bloom from late winter into spring. Most locations will see colorful buds bursting open in March or early April. We've seen them bloom as early as January in the Carolinas! Flowering Quince grow throughout most of the US; enjoy these beauties from zone 4 to zone 9!

The upright, but flowing habit of this Flowering Quince make it uniquely beautiful. These pretty shrubs grow similar to forsythia; they grow up and out and are spreaders especially as they age. The foliage is shiny green and dense. The leaves fill in as the blooms are beginning to fade.

The Flowering Quince is a low maintenance shrub that is drought, deer, pollution, and salt tolerant. It tends to be pest and disease free. So, there is no need to spray this hardy shrub with harsh chemicals and that saves you time and money, and reduces your environmental impact!

Plant in full sun for best results. This shrub is very adaptable to soil conditions. Water well when planting and keep it up for the first 2-3 months while your plant is establishing its roots. Once established, watering is only needed in periods of severe drought. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring and fall for the fastest growth. Heavy pruning is tolerated well so trim to your desired height!

The Flowering Quince is the perfect plant for peppering pops of color throughout your yard! Order yours today and enjoy blooms this winter!

How To Care

The Flowering Quince is an easy to grow shrub that is drought, deer, pollution, and salt tolerant. It rarely has problems with pests and diseases.

Plant in full to part sun. This shrub is very adaptable to soil conditions. Water deeply at least 1 - 2 times per week when newly planted. Once established, watering is only needed in periods of severe drought. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring and fall for the fastest growth. Prune after blooming to control size and shape. It is important to prune right after flowers have bloomed because flowers form on old wood. Heavy pruning is tolerated well. Some pruning is likely needed to keep this shrub clean and able to get proper air flow.
