Yes I call it a japonica quince, but proper name is chaenomeles speciosa. My 6 ft tall one was grown from a 3inch piece broken from a neighbours one 44 years ago! Stunning flowers before the leaves appear. I'm trying to grow a clematis up it so that there is some interest when the flowers have gone. Has huge apple-like fruit on it, but don't try making quince jelly from them like I did. They are not the right fruit for it, just share the same name.
