Chaenomeles 'Cameo'

Chaenomeles 'Cameo'
Common name flowering quince
Family rosaceae
Life cycle shrub
Flowers salmon-orange (April-May)
Size 3'
Light sun-part shade

One of the several varieties of ornamental quince we grow. This one is quite vigorous, enlarging itself by suckering and sideways branching, but doesn't grow as tall as some of the others we grow, such as 'Toyo Nishiki'. It sits between our little patio pond and the shelves that hold our collection of hypertufa troughs, so it requires some pruning to stay in the right size range. Which it doesn't seem to mind.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
