The Japanese quince is invaluable for early spring colour when its bright orange-flame flowers stud the bare thorny stems for weeks. These flowers often mature into rounded green or yellow quinces which can make an delicious jelly. It's one of the easiest of all shrubs to grow in virtually any soil and can also be trained on to a shady wall.
