I am new to the forum and I actually joined wanting to find out what shrub I had discovered behind my garage but I did find out what it was eventually asking around. Anyway the poor thing has had a rough life since I moved in. I moved to my place May 2005 and I thought it was just a nuisance shrub and lopped the whole thing down, being I moved in after it bloomed and greened up I didnt know it was a "good" shrub. Last year it probably wasnt big enough to show out very much plus we had a late hard freeze but this year, it is actually has grown back several inches, 17" of rain during for the month of March probably had something to do with it. But I noticed it blooming today and started wondering what it was and I found out it is a Flowering Quince. I have some questions about them, now that I am in touch with my green thumb. Does it need pruned? If so, how? It is obviously hardy since it is coming back after being wiped out. What do I need to know about it, good and bad? Is it invasive? Going to try and attach a photo of it, not real good at these forum html things so you may just see a bunch of hoobla.
