Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

Quince generally bloom very early around the same time as the Forsythia.  I'm always excited when I see blooms as I know spring is just around the corner!  Sometimes, if your eye is a bit creative, the Double take Quince blooms can look like Camellia blooms.  In general, the plant is extremely low maintenance. 

Brightly colored Quice are a perfect addition for Chinese New Year as they bloom very early.
