Notes:

Found this in the empty lot next door and wondered what it was and what the best way would be to transplant it to our yard.

    I should have asked my mother first! It’s a flowering quince.

    I think it may be a flowering quince. They are in bloom right now. I think transplanting when dormant is best – maybe in the fall. We tried to break off a piece and root it but not much luck. Let’s see what the experts say…..

    Looks like quince. They tend to have a taproot… But they usually live when moved…. They also sucker, maybe you could move part pf the shrub, rather than trying to move all of it… Quince looks nice in bloom, but spends the rest of the year looking nondescript… Maybe keep your eye on the bush for a year before moving? Most bushes and trees prefer to be moved in the autumn in Georgia.

    Some plants just can’t wait for spring. Flowering Quince is one that comes bursting out of the gate and then just as quickly it’s gone. Look for sucker growth around the base of the plant for transplanting. Here is a good link from Dave’s Garden http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/2128/
