OTHER: The Chinese Quince Tree, a native of China, is loved for its delicious edible fruit & ornamental value. The trees are thornless & semi-evergreen with fall leaves in lovely shades of yellow, scarlet, & dark red. Plants can tolerate sandy or heavy clay soils, & are cold hardy to zone 5, equivelant to – 20 degrees F. They are also a popular bonsai specimen.
Large fragrant 1 1/2" pink flowers cover the tree in spring, & attract bees & butterflies. The Quince fruit starts out green & matures a yellow orange by fall. The fruit has a wonderful sweet spicy scent. They are so heavily fragranced, the fruits are used as an air freshener. To use them as an air freshner, simply place the fruit in a room, perhaps in a bowl, & then they can also be turned into a handy midnight snack! Chinese Quince fruit measures 5 - 7" long, & has a sweet flavor. It is often served sugared or with honey, for jams, pies & deserts, as well as juices & liqueurs.

I received the seeds on time via USPS. Happy to see they came with instructions for germinating them (thank you). We had a quince tree at our old house and had been looking to grow one here for a very long time. Thank You so much for the little packet of wild flower seeds for attracting bees!
