Chaenomeles “Dwarf Japanese Quince” is one of the most popular ornamental quince varieties, due to its particularly compact growth habit, healthy glossy foliage as well as the most wonderful spectacle of Spring colour possible, where the entire plant is covered by stunning orange/red/coral flowers. This variety is derived from the selection rubra, highlighting that the flowers will be substantially red, however, there can be some variation in flower colour ranging from an orange and coral tone, through to a bright crimson red. The compact shrubs are deciduous during Winter, which are quickly covered by beautiful glossy green foliage at the beginning of Spring only to be followed by the unmistakable floral display. In time, more mature plants can produce a small yellow quince fruit that whilst edible, is generally considered quite bitter and most suitable for jams and preserves. The variety Chaenomeles “Dwarf Japanese Quince” is compact growing and improved selection of Chaenomeles Japonica. Like all Quince varieties, when growing this variety from seed, in order to achieve the best results, a cold stratification process in the order of 2 - 4 weeks is recommended.
