I first planted it in May 2008, then moved it in 2009, and while it has survived my moves it hasn't blossomed. Duh! Wonder why. Maybe this year 2011 it has been in one spot long enough. Gets full sun in my Alaskan garden.

Considered by many to be the most beautiful quince of all. Deep-red double blooms look like camellias. Heavy yields of aromatic yellow fruit in late summer and early autumn.
