Chaenomeles Superba Crimson and Gold
The Chaenomeles Superba varieties of Japanese flowering quince are hardy and attractive flowering shrubs. Chaenomeles Superba Crimson and Gold is one of the best performing cultivars of the family. This crimson-flowering variety received the coveted Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1993. It also received ‘perfect for pollinators’ badge.

A small, spiny deciduous shrub, Japanese Quince Crimson and Gold boasts a lovely spreading habit. The thorny branches bear glossy, obovate leaves that are up to 5 cm in length. In the early spring, this ornamental quince produces masses of stunning blossoms whose colours give it its name - deep crimson petals with prominent golden anthers. The blossoms are around 3.5 cm in width and are followed by fragrant yellow fruit. The quince fruits are around 5 cm in length and can be used for making jams or jellies, or left over winter to attract birds who love feasting on them after the first frosts.

Height and Spread of Chaenomeles Superba Crimson and Gold
Japanese Quince Crimson and Gold is a compact variety. The expected maximum height for this cultivar is approximately 1 to 1.5 metres, whereas its spreading habit leads to a width of 1.5 to 2.5 metres.

How Hardy is Chaenomeles Superba Crimson and Gold
A top performer whose remarkable resilience has been recognised by the RHS, Japanese Quince Crimson and Gold is fully hardy in the United Kingdom. It will not need sheltering from frosts and will do well even in sub-zero temperatures. Drought tolerant once established, deer and rabbit resistant.

How To Use Chaenomeles Superba Crimson and Gold
The striking appearance of the Japanese Quince Crimson and Gold makes it perfect for a focal point(s) in the garden. The profusion of blood red blossoms leaves no one indifferent, especially so early in the year. Choose this variety as a specimen plant or train against a wall as a highly-decorative backdrop to low-growing shrubs. Crimson and Gold is also a wonderful addition to mixed shrub borders, especially when paired with evergreen and late-flowering cultivars.

How To Care for Chaenomeles Superba Crimson and Gold
Undemanding and virtually indestructible, Japanese Quince Crimson and Gold is easy to grow and to care for. An ideal plant for gardening beginners, it will not require much to flourish. Plant it in a spot in full sun to partial shade, in any well-drained soil.
