    Features

    Make the most of spring with this super long bloomer! Double Take Eternal White quince is worthy of its name with plentiful creamy white blooms AND all of the buds that keep it flowering from mid-spring ‘til early-summer. Weeks longer than its fellow quince! Its flowers are nicely displayed on the wider than tall habit. This short height makes it easy to harvest from in a cut flower garden, and it looks lovely planted as a drift in the middle of the border.

    • Purchased three this spring, only one is still doing well. The other two are dying rather rapidly.
