(Chaenomeles x superba)
Texas Scarlet is considered the best of the red Flowering Quinces. The name has little to do with it's origin as this particular branch of the Chaenomeles family is a cross of Chinese and Japanese plants. Bountiful, brilliant scarlet-red, buttercup-like blossoms develop into the greenish fruit with many culinary uses. Glossy, green leaves cover the spiny, arching branches of this low, compact shrub. Although it is adaptable enough to thrive in full shade, you will get better blooming in a sunny spot.
Mature size is approx. 100cm (3-4') high and 120cm (4-5') wide.
