Blast of Scarlet in Early Spring

Texas Scarlet Flowering Quince, Chaenomeles japonica 'Texas Scarlet', is one of the first shrubs to bloom in the spring.

The scarlet flowers emerge before the foliage in the spring.

The emerging young foliage is also red and matures into glossy, green foliage which covers the 3' high plant.

The suggested uses for this plant include specimen plant, border, barrier, hedge, cut flowers, and attracting wildlife.

The fruit is yellow-green fruit and edible when cooked. It may be left on the plant to feed wildlife.

The Texas Scarlet Flowering Quince does best in full to part sun and is adaptable to both dry and moist sites. This 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!
