Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CHAENOMELES japonica 'Sargentii'
Japanese Flowering Quince, Maule's Flowering Quince, Sargent's Flowering Quince
This selection of Japanese flowering quince, ‘Sargentiii,’ descends from a species native to Japan. It is a low-growing, deciduous shrub that blooms profusely in the spring with clusters of salmon-pink to soft orange flowers both before and after the leaves come out. Small, fragrant, greenish yellow, apple-shaped fruits with a red blush ripen in the fall and can be used for preserves and jellies.
For full bloom, grow ‘Sargentii’ in full sun. It tolerates a wide range of soils, including mildly alkaline soils. It will grow in partial shade but flower less profusely. Its broad-spreading habit and thorny branches make ‘Sargentii’ useful for hedges and barriers.
