‘Pink Storm’ is a flowering quince that is noted for producing an early spring bloom of double pink flowers that resemble camellias. This is a dense, broad-rounded, thornless, deciduous shrub that typically grows to 3-4′ tall and as wide. Bold pink double flowers (to 2” diameter) bloom, often in profusion, before the leaves fully unfold in an early spring bloom. Plants do not produce fruit. Oval to oblong, glossy dark green leaves. No fall color. Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best flowering occurs in full sun. Adapts to a wide range of soil conditions, but prefers well-drained loams. Established plants will tolerate dryish soils. Plants bloom on old growth. Avoid heavy pruning. Prune to shape as needed in spring after flowering to stimulate growth of flowering spurs which will improve bloom for the following year. Promptly remove root suckers to control possible spread. Spring accent. Hedge. Specimen or group in shrub border or cottage garden. Branches may be clipped and forced for winter bloom.
