My neighbor Carol, who owns the exceptionally well curated Gray Antiques and Interiors, has the most beautiful quince cultivar that I’ve ever seen. Not too brick-colored, and not too light. We’ve lived across from each other for 14 years, and I’ve coveted it from day 1. I bought what I thought was the same shade at least 3 times. Alas! No luck. So this year, with the branches Carol gave me, I’m going to try to root it. Early bloomers pussy willow and forsythia are easy to root. Not so sure about quince. If you’ve had luck, let me know.
Even scrappy Howard loves quince!
