I think this is my fifth year with this bush... it started as a small twig and this year it's branches are spread five feet wide, four feet high. It was covered with beautiful flowers. They add such a bright pop of color along with creeping phlox, tulips and daffodils. I've heard some people warn about flowering quince having suckers, but I've yet to see any.

I have been growing Cameo for a few years now, and I am very happy with it. The plants are filling in nicely with only occasional trimming to keep them neat. The flowers are a wonderful peachy coral in the spring, and sometimes there is a small rebloom in the fall.
