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. 'Moerloosei' is later flowering than other varieties and has cup-shaped, white flowers flushed pink from March to May, followed by aromatic, greenish-yellow fruit. This vigorous, deciduous quince makes an attractive informal hedge fora sunny or partly shady site with moderately fertile, well-drainedsoil, and looks stunning trained against a wall. The fruit can be eaten when cooked.Garden care: After flowering, prune side-shoots to fiveor 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.
