Japanese Quince (Quince Japonica)

I love Japanese quince very much. I always like to force it to flower, starting in early February. It takes about two to three weeks, submerging it in water to make the buds burst open. When it grows outdoor ( zone 5 ) its flowers are pinkish color, but forced they are more pale. They are equally beautiful! Good for ikebana use.
Here are four branches. I just put them into a tall vase.
Does it look like Ikebana?
