DOUBLE TAKE® Peach Quince

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

A fabulous addition to the Double Take® series! Double Take® Peach flowering quince offers the same benefits as the other three in the series – large double flowers, very long bloom time, outstanding heat tolerance, and thornless stems – but in a romantic soft peach color. A spring classic, updated for today’s landscapes.


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.
