Description

One look at 'Texas Scarlet' flowering quince in bloom and most gardeners are sold! Scarlet flowers emerge in early spring before the emerging young foliage which is also red and matures into glossy green foliage.

It is a dense, broad-rounded, deciduous shrub with often tangled, occasionally spiny-tipped twigs. Flowers are followed by hard, yellowish-green fruits (2.5" quince) that may acquire red tinges as they mature in autumn. Quinces are edible, but usually are considered too bitter to be eaten directly from the shrub. Quinces are sometimes used in preserves and jellies. Oval to oblong, glossy dark green leaves (to 3.5" long). No fall color.

The plant was shipped very well with no damage. The only thing I would like is a small card that explains the care for the plant but other than that I totally recommend buying it if interested.

Arrived healthy and larger than expected - great job packing and shipping. And it arrived the same week that a very serious tornado hit the area where they are located - I expected to wait weeks for it to arrive. My biggest concern was for the people who live in and around the area impacted. I was very surprised when it arrived later that same week. Beautiful plant and I was incredibly happy with the quality, price and shipping. These guys get an A+++ - and I do hope that they and their employees were spared any damage, injury and loss of life.
