- Comments(Chaenomeles speciosa Double Take™ 'Scarlet Storm' PP20951) Makes traditional Flowering Quince look downright boring! Big 2? flowers blaze all up and down the stems of this dense, mounded bush over an unusually long period from early spring to early summer. Thornless, deer resistant, and drought tolerant once established, this plant is very easy to grow and adapts well to most any soil, as long as it's well-drained. It blooms on old growth, so do any pruning you wish after flowering. Can not ship to AE,AK,GU,HI,PR.
