Early Blooming Shrub
This effortless flowering shrub rarely needs pruning. Unbeatable soft coral-peach, camellia-like double blossoms adorn thornless branches in spring – stunning in flower arrangements. Drought tolerant once established. Chaenomeles Double Take Peach™ will produce few to no fruits. For best flower color in cooler climates, plant in full sun. In hot climates, some afternoon shade will help flowers last longer. From the Double Take™ Series, these beauties will often rebloom in the fall for some surprise late-season color. Developed at the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center in Asheville, NC by Dr. Thomas Ranney.

Chaenomeles General Information

Chaenomeles are early flowering and easy to grow. They thrive in any soil and although tolerant of some shade, will bloom better in sun. A perfect specimen shrub for any mixed border. Very tolerant of heat and dry conditions once established. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Chaenomeles Plant Care

Little pruning is needed unless training them against a wall. Prune in late spring or early summer right after flowering to shape if needed. Flowering performance is improved the following season by lightly pruning the new growth. Flowers appear mostly on two-year-old wood so do not prune too heavily. Fertilize in early spring after the ground has thawed.
