Beautify your Borders with the Flowering Quince

If you're in search of a hedge with tons of eye-popping floral coverage, then look no further than the Flowering Quince. Topping out at about 4 feet high, this wide-spreading plant perfectly fills in borders or just about any planting location you choose. An early bloom in March brings vibrant colors to your yard or landscape right at the start of the season. A gorgeous display of either red, pink or orange flowers will begin to flood your shrub as soon as winter releases its icy grip. Tolerant of dry sites and able to withstand strong winds, the Flowering Quince is a great candidate for hedges, borders and barriers.

Flowers, Fruits and Jams, Oh My

Like fine wine, the Flowering Quince's blooms get better with age. Their bright color turns deeper as the season progresses. The radiant scarlet pedals will morph into an unforgettable maroon you'll look forward to each season. As if the show of flowers wasn't enough, your Quince will reward you with a shower of pale-green fruit that resembles the crabapple. Once they mature to a ripened red, remove the small, speckled fruit and use them to make incredible homemade jellies and jams you won't soon forget.

Few border hedges offer the versatility and functionality you'll find in the Flowering Quince. Get yours today!

Not much to report, except to say that not shipping bare root makes transplanting much more likely to be successful.

Flowering Later
I ordered 2 flowering quince. The delivery was very fast and the plants were very healthy looking.
At present they are just green leaves because they bloom in the Spring.
I would have liked more care information especially with this weather. I give it a deep watering every other day because that is what was recommended for my other new bushes.
I won't know until the Spring whether this is a good deal or not.

Flowering Quince doing fine
It's only been about two months since I planted my Flowering Quince. It was planted late in the season. I was pleasantly surprised to see that is has already grown a few inches and is starting to fill out a little, Not many blooms but I suspect that's because we're already getting very cool weather. All in all it looks very healthy and I'm looking forward to next season to see the beautiful blooms.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Flowering Quince

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Flowering Quince.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Flowering Quince gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Flowering Quince again after the transplant is complete.

are plants guaranteed to be in good condition?
barbie on Jul 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The plants are packed well and ready to be planted. I bought this for my mother-in-law and she loved it. I was so glad that it bloomed. Will buy more plants from this company.
Do birds like the fruit?
Clair W on Feb 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have two mature quince bushes that bear regularly - I make my own jelly and chutney from the fruit. The birds don't bother the fruit however if find some years they can be wormy. When the fruit falls, the squirrels have been seen carrying them off. I have no idea how they can ingest the fruit as it is so lip puckering. As an aside, the aroma released from a basket of quince is heavenly. Harvest is in October, less ripe fruit has more pectin..
Is this plant/fruit deer resistant?
Michele C on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Flowering Quince is Deer resistant. I live in Oregon and I have many Deer in my yard frequently and the Deer have not bothered it.

mary r on Jul 24, 2015

is it deciduous?
Barbara on Apr 23, 2015

What is the color of the flowers and fruits?
Tulips8815 on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The color is similar to the picture. This is the first season for flowers as the three plants were planted two years ago. All three have survived a cold winter last year followed by a hot dry summer. This last winter has been unseasonably mild.
Poisonous to pets?
Thomas M on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I decided to look it up since I didn't know the answer, and got the same info on quite a few sites.
On Wikipedia, it says this:
Toxicology; The seeds contain nitriles, which are common in seeds of the rose family. In the stomach, enzymes or stomach acid or both cause some of the nitriles to be hydrolyzed and produce hydrogen cyanide, which is a volatile gas. The seeds are only likely to be toxic if a large quantity is eaten.

I have a dog and she could care less about it....and she eats everything. My 3 Quince are just starting out so I haven't gotten any fruit yet. Your pet would have to eat a lot of the SEEDS in the fruit to be poisoned.
Hope this helps.
