Chaenomeles speciosa 'Alarm' Details

“Alarm” is a hardy, deciduous shrub that features lovely flowers in winter. At this time the shrub is an arching network of thorny branches with clusters of tight buds that open into single, bright red flowers. Flowering continues into spring as the foliage emerges. The flowers are followed by ornamental fruits that look like small quinces and are complemented with fresh green foliage that develops yellow tones in autumn before falling. It typically grows to 1.5 m tall and the same wide, performing best when grown in full sun on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of frost and cool climates. “Alarm” is commonly added to a mixed planting, grown for floral art, used as an informal hedge, or planted in clusters for a stunning display. It is an attractive and easy to grow plant that is very rewarding.
