Chaenomeles speciosa
Flowering Quince

Although this photograph was taken in February, it is similar in appearance as to how Flowering Quince looks by August, when it has usually defoliated in response to the heat and drought of Summer (in spite of having deep roots, which makes it difficult to transplant once it is established in the landscape). For this cosmetic reason, quinces are rarely available at nurseries and garden centers.
