$29.95

28 in stock

Profuse clusters of deep, rosy pink blossoms bedeck the bare branches of this dense, multi-stemmed shrub in very early spring, before the glossy, dark green leaves emerge. Pink Lady is primarily grown as an ornamental, but it is also valued for the edible qualities of the showy, yellow 5 cm ( 2" ) fruit it bears. By early autumn, the brisk, citrus-like aroma tells you these miniature quince can be turned into preserves. The spreading, rounded bush matures at about 100 cm ( 3-4' ) high and 120 cm ( 4-5' ) wide.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
