Double Take Pink Storm Flowering Quince Double Take™ 'Pink Storm' Chaenomeles lagenaria 'Pink Storm' PP20,920

Other Common Name(s):

Previously known as:

  • Double Take™ 'Pink Storm' Chaenomeles speciosa 'Pink Storm' PP20,920
Description

Pink Storm is a medium-sized, upright to rounded, multi-stemmed shrub with a mature height of approximately 4 feet. It will bloom best in full sun though will tolerate some partial shade.  Large, salmon or coral colored, double flowers appear in early spring before the leaves appear. This hybrid is fruitless and thornless.  Double Take quinces often rebloom in fall for some surprising color late in the season.     

Prune as needed to remove dead or broken branches and improve shape in the spring after flowering.  This will stimulate the growth of flowering spurs which will improve bloom for the following year. Promptly remove any root suckers to control unwanted spread.

Pink Storm withstands a range of soil types including heavy clay but prefers well-drained loams. It is drought tolerant once established. Pink Storm does well in high erosion areas like slopes. Flower buds are susceptible to damage from early spring frosts so a protected site is ideal. In warmer areas, some afternoon shade will help flowers last longer.

Insects and Diseases: May be susceptible to fungal leaf spots during rainy springs, fireblight and scab may be problematic in some areas also aphids, scale and mites. Chlorosis (yellowing of foliage) will occur in high pH soils.
