Searching Genus for CHAENOMELES

A small genus of 3 deciduous shrubs or small trees native to eastern Asia, sometimes spiny. These ornamental quinces are easily cultivated, beautiful early spring flowering shrubs. The saucer-shaped flowers vary in shades of red, orange and white and are followed by large, yellow quinces. Will thrive in the open border or trained against a wall.

CHAENOMELES cathayensisEarly Summer845
Chinese Quince6m  Zone: 6
This rarely available Chinese species grows on hillsides, in open thickets, on rocky slopes, ravines and forests. It grows taller than the other species and tends to be more tree form, with an open habit. Leaves are narrow, serrated and shiny. The delicate apple-blossom-like flowers are white, flushed with pink. This species, while not as hardy as C. japonica or speciosa, bears the largest fruit of the Chaenomeles genus, at between 10 and 15cm, with mature fruit weighing near 900 grams. This makes lovely jelly. Also a wonderful bonsai subject. For a sunny site with well-drained moderately fertile soil for best results.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.

CHAENOMELES japonicaSpring843
Japanese Flowering Quince100cm  Zone: 3
The Japanese quince is invaluable for early spring colour when its fragrant, bright orange-flame flowers stud the bare thorny stems for weeks. These flowers mature into rounded green or yellow quinces which make delicious jelly. One of the easiest of all shrubs to grow in virtually any soil(including heavy clay) and can also be trained on to a shady wall. Also a wonderful bonsai subject.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.
