OTHER: Chaenomeles Japonica is a popular ornamental dwarf shrub that is native to Japan. The Dwarf Quince only grows to 3 – 4’ in height, but twice as wide. They tolerate pruning well, so you can reduce their width if you’d like, or use them as a bonsai specimen. The plants tolerate drought & clay, & most soil conditions except wet. They can even grow in full shade but produce less fruit, which doesn’t matter if you wish to use their thorny branches as a security plant, or to help control erosion.
Extremely showy bright red flowers absolutely cover the plant in spring before the foliage appears, & they can rebloom later in the season. The flowers are fragrant, & bloom in 1 1/2" clusters. This Dwarf Flowering Quince is a great source of nectar & pollen for bees including honey bees. The ornamental 1 1/2" apple shaped fruit matures a greenish yellow in fall. The fruit is very fragrant with a wonderful sweet spicy scent. They are so heavily fragranced, the fruits are used as an air freshener. Animals also enjoy eating the fruit.
