Greet spring with a flowering shrub that fills the air with bright, hard-to-find shades of peach, salmon, and orangy-pink. Double Take Peach® is a Proven Winner, guaranteed to delight you from the very first season in your sunny garden!

This Flowering Quince blooms in mid-spring in most climates. The petal-packed double flowers often appear before the foliage, running up and down the long, slender stems of this nearly thornless shrub. Cut the whole stem and bring them indoors to enjoy in the vase for several weeks, or leave them on the plant and watch the season's first bees come to feast!

Double Take Peach® is compact and well branched, just 4 to 5 feet high and not quite as wide. It makes a delightful specimen in any sunny spot, or can be worked into the shrub or perennial border, complementing the later-blooming plants around it nicely. The soft green foliage stays handsome through fall before dropping, and the bare winter silhouette is elegant as well.

This Flowering Quince needs no maintenance, but if you do choose to prune it, do so right after it blooms in spring. This shrub blooms on old wood, so it will need summer and fall to grow and bud new stems for next spring's blooms!

Much more tolerant of hot summer weather and dry soils than older varieties, Double Take Peach® is an excellent choice for the south, southwest, and midwest. If you have had a Flowering Quince melt out or stop blooming too quickly in the past, give this exciting variety a try. It has much greater stamina than older Chaenomeles!
