Native to Asia, Red Japanese quince (Chaenomeles x superba 'Rubra') is a tall vigorous shrub with an upright habit and tangled, spiny branches.

Clusters of beautiful deep red flowers bloom from April to May. Along with other early blooming shrubs such as yellow Forsythia, white Abeliophyllum and pink Rhododendron, the red japanese quince is the perfect candidate to add early colour in the spring!

Glossy deep green foliage sprouts from stems growing to 8 ft tall and 6 ft wide. This large deciduous shrub produces apple-like aromatic fruit which is good for making jelly and compotes.
