Japonica Quince - Chaenomeles japonica
Usually grown as a decorative shrub for the beautiful red, orange, pink or white flowers, and common in many British gardens where it is often grown as a hedge. The small hard fruits can be used for culinary desserts, though are inedible uncooked. They are often seen in winter, hanging onto bare branches long after the leaves have fallen.
