Chaenomeles x superba 'Elly Mossel' (Large Plant)

Flowering Quince, Japanese Quince, Japonica

Hardy Shrub

This rounded, deciduous shrub bears masses of scarlet red flowers in spring. The nectar rich blooms of Chaenomeles x superba 'Elly Mossel' are replaced by rounded, aromatic fruits in autumn, which make a particularly attractive display. Although edible, the apple-like fruits of the Japanese Quince are only palatable when cooked. Chaenomeles is often trained as a wall shrub but makes an equally pleasing free-standing specimen for mixed borders, wildlife gardens and at the edge of woodland areas. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 200cm (78").
