The Texas Scarlet Quince is a spreading deciduous shrub growing about 4 feet tall, and a little wider. The branches are usually thornless, and they are smothered in early spring by brilliant scarlet-red blooms with bright yellow centers. These are often followed by apple-like fruits that make delicious jellies. The glossy green leaves are attractive all summer, and this plant is perfect in beds, in semi-wild areas, as a hedge, or trained to grow on a sunny wall or fence.

  • Vibrant scarlet-red blooms in late winter to early spring
  • Healthy green foliage throughout the summer
  • Apple-like fruits in fall make beautiful jellies
  • Can be trained to cover a wall or fence
  • Tough, vigorous and usually deer-proof

The Texas Scarlet Quince will grow best in full sun, and in any well-drained soil, from drier sands to tough clay. It is normally free of pests and diseases and deer usually leave it alone. Pruning in spring after blooming will keep it compact, and once established it is drought resistant and easy to grow.
