Are quince and Japonica the same?
In respect to this, are there different types of quince?
"Don't confuse these quinces with several other quince-like species grown for ornamental purposes. There are many varieties of Japanese quince (Chaenomeles japonica) and common flowering quince (C. speciosa, C. lagenaria), attractive shrubs bearing showy pink, red or orange flowers in early spring.
Additionally, how do Japanese quince grow? Growing Japanese flowering quince is not difficult, since these shrubs are tough and undemanding. They grow in sun or partial shade and accept most soils other than very wet ones. They will grow faster and bloom better if you provide irrigation during dry periods.
what is a quince shrub?
Flowering quince (Chaenomeles speciosa) is a deciduous shrub valued for its masses of showy white, red or pink blooms that brighten the landscape in late winter and early spring. Most varieties grow to 6 to 10 feet tall, with a similar spread, although some top out at only 3 feet.
Is Japanese quince poisonous to dogs?
Q -is for Quince flowers – Now I'm including this for the sake of continuity as some dogs can develop a reaction to the flowering Quince bush, but generally Quinces are fine for dogs. X is for Xylitol – Xylitol is an artificial sweetener commonly used to sweeten human foods, but it is very toxic for dogs.
