Special Attributes
 
The large doubled blooms of Double Take Quince series are unlike those any other variety - plus, no thorns!

Double Take Scarlet Storm Quince puts on a spectacular early spring display of large, double, dark red flowers on plants that have no thorns or fruit. Cut branches are excellent for indoor flower arrangements. When buds have formed on plants in late winter or very early spring, just cut a branch and bring it indoors to force buds to open. Quince are hardy and long-lived plants that once established are exceptionally drought tolerant.  



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 3-4 feet tall and wide, Scarlet Storm Flowering Quince is an ideal choice as a specimen or in groupings for eye-popping color in flowering shrub borders. Excellent companions are other early spring bloomers such as Forysthia, Tulip Tree Magnolias (tulip trees), Camellia Japonicas, and Reeves Spirea.

Spacing:  2.5-3' for solid hedges;  6'+ for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

Quince are exceptionally easy to grow. They adapt to most any type of  well-drained soil, preferring a loamy soil. Flower production is best in full to mostly sun, however plants will tolerate part shade. We suggest at least 5 hours of direct sunlight for best flowering. Plants are very drought tolerant when established. The flowers are born on old growth (last years branches) so avoid heavy pruning. Prune for shaping purposes after spring bloom.
