Description

The flowering quince is one of those shrubs that is easy to grow and very rewarding. It is an old-fashioned shrub with old-fashion appeal. This particular cultivar is mostly thornless and has beautiful double bloom bright pink flowers that transition from a lighter to darker orange on bloom. Blooms come before the leaves.

Way Too Small

Way too small for the price! I was expecting at least a small plant but received only three very small sprigs. I was disappointed.
However, the shipping and packaging was excellent!
