Flowering Japanese Quince
« on: April 07, 2013, 03:51 PM »
Afternoon All,

Great speing weekend here in St. Louis. Cut and edged the lawn after church this morning and worked on cleaning up the yard. The place looks great. My Japanese Flowering Quince are all putting on a great show. I have three. One is a common landscape quince that has a hot pink flower. One is a red Chojubai. The other was purchased as a chojubai but I have my doubts. Flowers are smaller than the hot pink landscape bush but larger than the red chojubai. They are a lovely light salmon color. The are some pictures.

all 3 are lovely flowers.

The 3rd is definitely not chojubai
There are so many quince cultivars it would be impossible to accurately guess which it is. And it could have originated as a no name seedling. It is an interesting color.

Nice flowers Rob!

My chojubai seedling I planted last yr grew really well.  But the winter has taken it's toll.  Not dead at all, but I have barely leaves showing right now.  I've since learned they don't tolerate the winter here so well.  So prob. today I'm going to pot it up.  I hope I can get some flowers this yr.
