Old Homestead Flowering Quince [SPRING]
(Chaenomeles japonica speciosa) These 6' tall shrubs are loaded with beautiful pink flowers and they also produce small yellow fruit, used to make jelly. These quince bushes were planted around homesteads one hundred or more years ago and have naturalized in many areas. Finding a thicket of these beautiful bushes, along with daffodils in the Pacific Northwest is a way to locate old long abandoned farm house sites. We propagated these from cuttings taken from flourishing but long abandoned bushes. One quart pot.
