Chaenomeles Speciosa Nivalis Flowering Quince 3 litre pot
Ornamental quinces bring a welcome flush of colour to the garden in spring when their bare twigs are smothered in flowers before the glossy, dark green leaves appear.
This easy-to-grow deciduous shrub is excellent for a partly shady border with moderately fertile well-drained soil and looks stunning trained against a wall.
The fruit can be eaten when cooked.
After flowering prune side-shoots to five or six leaves and remove crossing stems.
Once established remove excess growth in late spring or summer and cut back all side-shoots to two or three leaves.
Grown in a 3 litre pot
60cm tall excluding the pot
