Chaenomeles speciosa

Flowering quince in the Double Take™ series are hardy, deciduous shrubs reaching 4 to 5 feet high and at least as wide. Plants in the Double Take™ series produce a profusion of early spring double flowers that resemble camellias. This is a dense, broad-rounded, thornless, shrub. Bold double flowers (to 2” diameter) bloom before the leaves fully unfold in an early spring bloom and come in colors of scarlet, orange, pink, and peach. Plants do not produce fruit. Oval to oblong, glossy dark green leaves provide an attractive look through the summer. Prune lightly after blooms in spring when needed. Double Take™ flowering quince is very drought tolerant once established.
