Japanese Flowering Quince, Maule's Flowering Quince, Orange Beauty Flowering Quince
The smallest of the flowering quinces, Chaenomeles japonica is a low, spreading, spiny deciduous shrub native to Japan. The cultivar 'Orange Beauty' bears masses of bright orange flowers as its glossy leaves emerge in early spring. Small, fragrant, greenish yellow, apple-shaped fruits with a red blush ripen in fall and can be used for preserves and jellies.
Japanese flowering quince is adaptable to a wide range of soils and flowers best in full sun, although it can also be grown in part shade. Use it in the foundation planting or shrub border or as a low thorny hedge.
