Ornamental quinces bring a welcome flush of colour to the garden in spring, when their bare twigs are smothered in flowers before the glossy, dark green leaves appear. 'Geisha Girl' is later flowering than other varieties and has double, deep apricot-pink flowers from March to May, followed by aromatic, greenish-yellow fruit. This deciduous shrub looks lovely in the middle of a mixed border, or trained as a specimen against a wall. More compact than other varieties, it flowers best in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. The fruit can be eaten when cooked.Garden care: After flowering, prune side-shoots to five or six leaves and remove crossing stems. Once established, take out excess growth in late spring or summer and cut back all side-shoots to two or three leaves.
