My Flowering Quince is growing up!

spirea

 

It's been about 4 years since I planted my Flowering Quince ("Double Take Orange Storm") and a Spirea bush in the back of my yard. Every year I inspect it after the Spirea (photo) next to it blooms. I had loved the combination of 2 plants in Winterthur's Sundial Garden, and hoped to get a similar effect.

 

 

The Spirea was quick to bloom after the first year, but flowering quincethe Quince only had tiny blooms before. But, voila! This year the Quince has flowers large enough to see from the top of the hill. This variety does not have any noticeable fruits or thorns, it just wants to be admired for its colorful spirea and quinceblossoms. They grow in zones 5 to 9, and Delaware is in zone 7. The blooms are supposed to appear before the leaves, but this does not seem to apply to my variety.

So I am very happy to see this thriving addition to my garden and look forward to seeing hummingbirds and butterflies, which it is supposed to attract.

Hi Carolyn,

THanks for sharing those photos. I thought a quince is a yellow-fruit tree with small and not particularly interesting blooms. Is this what you have, or is it another type of quince?
