The blooms are double and extremely large, making them similar in appearance to a Camellia. Pink Storm is thornless, does not produce any fruits and grows to a height of between 120cm and 150cm, and to a width of between 90cm and 120cm. 

This Chaenomeles was bred by North Carolina State University and has been marketed by the Belgian supplier Willy De Nolf.

Chaenomeles Speciosa ‘Pink Storm’ was awarded Silver at the Florall nursery trade show at Waregem Expo in Belgium in March.
