Chaenomeles x superba 'Pink Lady', commonly known as the flowering quince, is a striking deciduous shrub renowned for its vibrant spring display. It is a hybrid variety belonging to the Rosaceae family and is appreciated for both its ornamental value and hardy nature.

The 'Pink Lady' typically grows to a height and spread of about 1.5 metres, making it suitable for a variety of garden settings, from hedges and borders to standalone specimen plants. Its growth habit is dense and thorny, which can provide added security as well as beauty.

One of the standout features of 'Pink Lady' is its profusion of stunning, bright pink flowers. These blooms, which appear from late winter to early spring, are cup-shaped with a delicate yet vivid hue that can lift the spirits during the duller months. The flowers often emerge before the leaves, creating a striking contrast against the bare branches. Each blossom comprises five petals, which are subtly ruffled, adding to the plant's charm.

Following the flowering period, 'Pink Lady' produces small, yellow-green fruits resembling tiny apples. These fruits are hard and bitter when raw but can be cooked to make jellies and preserves, adding another layer of utility to this attractive shrub.

The foliage of 'Pink Lady' is equally appealing, with glossy, dark green leaves that provide a lush backdrop for the vibrant flowers. The leaves are oval-shaped with finely serrated edges, turning a rich yellow in the autumn before falling.

Chaenomeles x superba 'Pink Lady' is robust and easy to grow, thriving in a range of soil types provided they are well-drained. It prefers a sunny or partially shaded position and is tolerant of urban pollution and coastal conditions. Regular pruning after flowering can help maintain its shape and encourage more prolific blooming in the following season. This makes 'Pink Lady' a versatile and low-maintenance choice for gardeners seeking year-round interest.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
