This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Impressively large, reddish-pink semi-double flowers, which look more like a camellia than a quince, clothe the thornless stems of this deciduous shrub in spring. Once the plant is established and has put on some growth, these stems can be cut and placed in a vase inside the house. Relatively tough and easy to grow, it can be trained as a wall shrub where there is limited space.

  • 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.
