( Flowering quince Scarff's Red )
|'Scarff's Red' is upright in nature and bears flowers in vivid crimson.
C. speciosa is a very attractive deciduous flowering shrub with a spreading and rounded habit. Leaves are glossy, ovate, and medium green up to 2-1/2 inches long. Clusters of white, pink, orange, scarlet, or crimson cup shaped flowers 1 to 2 inches across, are borne on spiny branches. Very nice for a shrub border or espalliered to wall. Cut branches with swollen flower buds may be forced indoors, making a welcomed winter flower arrangement. To prune, remove only crossing, diseased or broken branches. Flowering quince should never be sheared.
Important Info : Though not completely thornless, this cultivar lacks the abundance of thorns that many cultivars have.
