Chaenomeles – Double Take Peach™ – Quince – Chaenomeles speciosa
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Double Take quinces often rebloom in fall for some surprise color late in the season.
Double Take quince needs little in the way of regular maintenance. If pruning is required, do so after blooming ceases in late spring/early summer. Flowers appear mostly on two-year old wood, so do not prune too heavily. Fertilize, if desired, in early spring, when the ground has thawed.
In cold climates, plant in full sun for the very best flower color. In warmer areas, some afternoon shade will help flowers last longer.
