Flowering Quince Starting To Bloom

The beautiful and bright flowering quince is starting to bloom in my garden.  The Latin name of this particular cultivar is Japanese flowering quince Chaenomeles X ‘Texas Scarlet’, and it is a beauty.  Here is a picture:

You can make a beautiful winter combination of this shrub, which is a hummingbird food plant, along with Chinese witch hazel ‘Arnold Promise’, which blooms at the same time, along with Viburnum, an evergreen shrub that has pink buds and white flowers, hummingbird food, which blooms for a very long time and comes in a wide variety of cultivars, and then underplant with crocus, grape hyacinths, ‘Tete-A-Tete’ mini narcisus and mini irises.  Absolutely beautiful!

Leave a comment, and tell us if you grow other cultivars of Japanese flowering quince.
