Iwai Nishiki Quince
Chaenomeles speciosa 'Iwai Nishiki'


USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9b   Find Your Zone 

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Quince variety is not reliably winter hardy outdoors, you can enjoy growing it in containers that can be moved indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Heralding the arrival of spring, the large 2 to 3 inch diameter glowing red double flowers of Iwai Nishiki Quince appear in profusion up and down the branches in late winter through early to mid-spring. Fragrant, yellow fruits appear in late spring to early summer ripening in fall. The fruits are sour to the taste however, are good for use in jellies and jams. Cut branches are excellent for indoor flower arrangements. In late winter, when buds have formed on plants, 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 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, the Iwai Nishiki 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 ForysthiaTulip Tree Magnolias (tulip trees), Camellia Japonica, and Reeves Spirea.

Suggested Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedges;  9 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Quince are exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained to somewhat dry soil of average fertility, 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 wait to prune until after flowering.
