DOUBLE TAKE® Scarlet 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. The lipstick red flowers are long-lasting, and will sometimes rebloom during 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.
