Chaenomeles x superba 'Crimson and Gold' (Large Plant)

Flowering quince, Japanese Quince, Japonica

Hardy Shrub

Chaenomeles x superba 'Crimson and Gold' is a popular RHS AGM variety with a compact low growing habit that makes superb ground cover. From early Spring the bare stems of this Flowering Quince are covered in vibrant red blooms, each with contrasting golden anthers. The nectar rich flowers are followed by aromatic golden yellow fruits which can be made into jellies and preserves. Like other cultivars it makes a fabulous wall shrub or a colourful free standing specimen, adding plenty of garden interest throughout the year. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 200cm (78").
