Leave it to Proven Winners®/Color Choice® plants to take a nice flowering shrub and make it great. Double Take Orange™ does just that by taking the common Quince that filled the landscape with early color but unwanted, painful throns and messy fruit and makes it into even more of an early spring color bomb while removing all the things that bugged you about your 'old school' Quince. Gone are the thorns, gone is the fruit and gone are even the flowers as you remember them replaced by HUGE, silver dollar sized, ruffled pink-orange flowers that line the smooth, thornless branches of this vigorous, rounded, spreading shrub. These camellia-like blooms begin to open in early to mid April and soon cover the branches giving you a show that other Quince can only dream of. Plant this easy care beauty in a half to full day sun location. It's deer resistant, will tolerate pruning well and will look outstanding as a single specimen or grouped to form an unforgettable flowering hedge.
