Quince is such a wonderful bush. I love seeing the blooms because it means spring.

Wow! It's a fast grower. I didn't know the name of it. It's really pretty.

Staci: Yes, it's one of the first bushes to blossom! I grew it from seed and it has taken many years to get this far. Love the coral color of the flowers.
