Chaenomeles Superba Jet Trail 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.
Jet Trail is a deciduous shrub with bright green, glossy leaves and a prostrate habit. In spring it is covered with clusters of white, cup-shaped flowers followed by egg-shaped fruits in summer that ripen from green to yellow.
This an easy-to-grow deciduous shrub and is excellent for a partly shady border with moderately fertile, well-drained soil and looks stunning trained against a wall.
A popular compact variety, it's perfect for the smaller garden or where space is limited. 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.
