Description

A charming form of the Japanese quince with salmon-pink flowers, edged in white. Like all Japanese quince this grows well in shade and is unfussy about soil, lighting up a dark corner early in the year.

Care Tips

These will grow happily almost anywhere. Although they have a naturally spreading habit, they take well to wall-training. After flowering, prune side-shoots to five or six leaves and remove crossing stems.
