Quince - Jet Trails
The Quince, Jet Trails, 'Chaenomeles speciosa 'Jet Trails', is a small, bushy, spreading, deciduous shrub to 3 feet, with masses of white apple-blossom-like flowers in early spring before the glossy, dark-green foliage appears.
Jet Trails produces green apple-shaped fruit in October. The fruit is edible but it must be cooked in order to be enjoyed. Quince fruit is often found in pies, jam, and liqueurs.
Jet Trails is a very attractive plant for a small area of a yard or garden. It is useful for hedges, screens, barriers, and shrub borders. Branches from the Jet Trails shrub can clipped and forced for winter bloom in your home.
If pruning is needed, prune to shape in spring, after flowering. Pruning will stimulate the growth of flowering spurs which will improve bloom in the following year.
This tough and adaptable hybrid quince will thrive in a wide range of growing conditions. For best results, plant Jet Trails in full sun and well-drained soils.
Jet Trails attracts butterflies and birds!
