    The stems of this vigorous, flowering quince are smothered with pretty, pure white flowers from March to May, followed by aromatic, green-yellow fruit. Excellent for planting on a sunny or partly shady boundary with moderately fertile, well-drained soil. The spiny branches are a useful deterrent against unwanted intruders and marauding cats.

  • Garden care: After flowering prune side-shoots to five or six leaves and remove crossing or ill-placed stems. Once established remove excess growth in late spring or summer and cut back all side-shoots to two or three leaves.
