List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Flowering quince has brightly colored flowers, and its spines make it useful as a barrier plant. The fruits are not ornamental but have a high pectin content and may be used for jelly. Most flowering quince grow 4 to 8 feet tall and spread 6 to 10 feet. Grow the plant in full sun in any soil. Transplanting is easy, but control suckers to prevent formation of a thicket. Flowering quince may be used as a hedge plant. Branches may be used in arrangements if they're cut before the flowers are fully expanded. The flower color depends on the cultivar grown.
