Cameo Japanese Flowering Quince
Chaenomeles japonica 'Cameo'
Bright spring flowers give way to edible fruits
- - An early bloomer that welcomes in springtime
- - Long-lasting pink flowers right through summer
- - Quince-like, edible fruit emerges
Early, showy spring flowers
When these exuberant soft-apricot pink flowers appear, you’ll know spring has arrived. One of the first flowers to bloom, in February or March, they grow abundantly in large double clusters, bringing bright color to your garden.
Delicious, greenish yellow fruits
These long-lasting flowers bloom right through summer and once they go, they leave a little treat behind, as a small and fragrant fruit emerges. It is bitter when eaten raw but comes to life in jams, preserves, and jellies. Very similar to the quince fruit.
The Cameo Japanese Flowering Quince not only brings fragrance and style to the garden, its fruit attracts friendly birds also.
Full sun produces a sturdy shrub
It’s extremely hardy and grows easily. Under full sun a dense shrub of tangled, thorny branches emerges, resistant to drought. This compact shrub can reach a mature height of 3-4 ft. with a width of 5 ft.
A versatile addition to garden and home
Because of its compact nature, it’s ideal for use in borders or mixed-shrub hedges, especially when its abundant flowers bloom. The dense, tangled branches also make it perfect for screening or privacy barriers, while they can also be cut and brought indoors to bloom.
The Cameo Japanese Flowering Quince is certainly an all-rounder – stunning flowers, edible fruits, and versatile branches!
