Plant of the Week: Double Take™ Chaenomeles


Spring Color!

Is winter done? Last week seemed like a final, vindictive farewell tour. Let's hope that spring is here for good, because spring flowers are here!

Quince is a traditional favorite at this time of the year, and with good reason. The flowers are bright and cheerful, just what we need after months of gray gloom. And the plant itself is tough, tolerating sun, heat, drought and even clay soil. 

Double Take™ Chaenomeles have exceptionally large flowers for an even better spring bloom display than traditional varieties. As an added bonus, they don't have thorns, and typically don't produce fruit. Better flowers, no thorns, and no mess? Sign me up!

We're excited to introduce a new color into the Double Take™ series this spring: Double Take Peach™. Its soft color is a nice choice for folks who don't want the intensity of Orange, Scarlet or Pink.

All of the Double Take™ varieties are 4-5' tall and wide and grow best in full sun. They are hardy to USDA Zone 5.
