Blast of Scarlet in Early Spring

Love color, but crave an easy care garden? Let Texas Scarlet Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles japonica 'Texas Scarlet') amaze you in early spring. This variety makes a huge impact in your landscape right out of the gate on your growing season. 

Texas Scarlet Flowering Quince is one of the first shrubs to bloom in the spring. It holds its dramatic scarlet flowers on bare branches. The flowers emerge first before the foliage appears. Even the young foliage makes a statement. New leaves come out red, and then mature into glossy, green foliage.

Try this compact beauty as a lovely specimen plant planted by itself in a really visible spot. Or, try it with several others as a bold border, barrier, or a short hedge. This is a perfect backdrop in a mixed border. Let it shine, then perform beautifully as a wonderful foil for shorter perennials and grasses.

Any way you use in in the garden, you'll be able to take branches indoors for stunning cut flowers. You'll also be doing your local wildlife a big favor with these early flowers.

The fruit is yellow-green fruit and edible when cooked. Or, just leave them on the bush. They'll be gone before you know it - those birds are hungry in early spring!

The Texas Scarlet Flowering Quince does best in full to part sun and is adaptable to both dry and moist sites. This durable plant can thrive in urban environments!

Bring spring into your home by cutting branches and displaying the bright flowers in a vase or floral arrangement. Shear after flowering, if you'd like a more formal look. Order this fiery charmer today!
