DOUBLE TAKE® Orange Quince

Zone: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 4-5' Width/Spread: 3-4'

The huge, doubled flowers of this quince are far showier than those of older varieties. It will often rebloom later in the summer. This thornless cultivar produces little if any fruit so it does not create a mess in the landscape.

Light: Grows best in a spot that gets a minimum of four hours of direct sun exposure, up to all day light.

Soil: Will grow in any type of well-draining soil.

Water: Has average water needs and is relatively drought tolerant once it’s established.

Fertilizing: Apply a fertilizer formulated for flowering woody shrubs in early spring.

Pruning: Doesn’t generally need much pruning, but you can shape it in the springtime. It will benefit from rejuvenation pruning every 4 to 6 years or so. Just remove 1/3 of the thickest, oldest stems.

Other: This is a thornless series, so it’s perfect for flower arrangements.
