Comments: This is an excellent selection for a white flowering quince. It produces a robust shrub with an abundance of flowers. Because quinces live a long time, periodically remove old non-productive canes to encourage new growth that will continue to produce flowrs. Prune immediately after flowering. Flowering quinces can defoliate in late summer due to leaf diseases, especially in hot humid climates. Tolerates a wide range of growing conditions provided there is full sunlight and a well drained soil.
