Chaenomeles, or ornamental quince, are spiny-stemmed deciduous shrubs with small serrated leaves. Their colourful flower clusters emerge just before the leaves and continue to bloom for several months from late winter until March and April followed in late summer by fragrant fruits which can be made into preserves or compotes. Chaenomeles sup. ‘Red Trail’ has cup-shaped bright red flowers centred with distinctive yellow anthers then, in late summer, speckled fruit.

Plant Chaenomeles sup. ‘Red Trail’ in a sunny spot with moist well-drained soil for a profuse display of flowers and fruit. Chaenomeles sup. ‘Red Trail’ can be used as a pretty but effective flowering hedge about 80cm to 1 metre high. Plant 3 to 4 plants per metre, then maintain by trimming the sides and shortening long top stems. Or grow it near a wall or fence and train the spiny stems along 3 or 4 horizontal strands of strainer wire suspended between metal vine eyes.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place in a sheltered spot and water regularly to keep the compost moist.

Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant’s rootball. If your soil is heavy mix in a soil improver before backfilling. Firm the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Water shrubs regularly in the first year after planting and in dry periods
