Unlike many other varieties of Japanese quince, Chaenomeles 'Red Kimono' bears no thorns, a great plus! From the end of winter, this shrub brings colour and cheerfulness to the garden with its brilliant, bright red flowers, held on bare stems. The glossy green foliage appears later. It has a rapid growth rate, and an erect habit. Requiring little maintenance, it is equally suitable as an isolated specimen, in flower beds or in mixed borders.
Can be pruned if necessary, but always after flowering
