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.
