Cydonia oblonga


While carrying branches from Lawrence's Chaenomeles 'Apple Blossom' that I've been pruning this week since it's finished flowering, I noticed another Quince at the curb shedding it's bark. This tree form is actually Cydonia oblonga that Elizabeth Lawrence planted while living here. It has also finished flowering, which is often missed since they are tiny, and above eye level. The bark is hard to miss and I thought I would share this interesting picture. I briefly researched my collection of Elizabeth Lawrence books for a Cydonia comment, but could not find one. For now, we'll just have to thank Miss Lawrence for leaving us with this spectacular tree.

Thanks for visiting,

Katie
