Description

This plant is a hybrid of the Japanese flowering quince and the common flowering quince. It will tolerate a wide range of light (full sun to partial shade) and soil conditions. The peach-pink flowers in the spring give way to fruit that ripens in the fall. The showy yellow fruit is bitter but edible and may be used in preserves. Prune lightly soon after flowering to stimulate growth.
