The dark stems of the spring-flowering quince stand out in the winter months, and even after the blooms fade, the plant's petite, waxy green leaves keep it looking terrific.
Giant alliums have globular tops composed of tiny individual flowers in blues, purples, pinks and whites. The enormous blooms teeter atop long, slender, stick-straight stems.
The Quince is prized for being hardy and versatile. Colorful blooms add to the striking Japanese style of the quince.
