Chaenomeles speciosa 'Hot Fire' (Large Plant)

Flowering quince, Japanese Quince, Japonica

Hardy Shrub

The crimson red flowers of Chaenomeles speciosa 'Hot Fire' appear early in the spring upon bare, spiny stems. The rounded green foliage that follows provides a fitting backdrop for the showy, yellow autumn fruits that can be made into jams and preserves. Flowering Quince are ideal specimens for the border and make superb wall shrubs with a little training. The nectar rich blooms are also loved by pollinating insects, making this a good choice for wildlife areas too. Height and spread: 150cm (59").
