Flowering quince

Post by terryb » July 1st, 2020, 9:57 pm

My quinces have lots of buds this year. This is Chaenomeles speciosa "Apple Blossom". The flowers open white and then change to a dusty pink. We have a vigorous cold front moving through over the next couple of days, hopefully it doesn't cause too much damage.

Was planning to repot after flowering has finished and then layering and cutting back later this year. I assume given how slowly they thicken, that healing cuts also takes a while? Happy to get some advice.

I've got nothing in the advice department, but just wanted to say the flowers look good. Mine are a couple of months away from flowering I think.

They do look beautiful :)
I'm surprised, I'm also in Adelaide but all of my quince - both japonica and speciosa - are only just starting to show tiny buds now.... I can't wait for them to flower like yours!
Very nice :tu:
Winter is soooooo boring! Bring on spring!!! :whistle:

Beautiful...I have mostly red varieties and after a spectacular flower show last year, this year has been pretty ordinary.
Just want to say that quinces are very easy to propagate by cutting. You won't need to air layer unless you are going for a thick one.

Almost all flowers are open now and I have started removing spent flowers.
