Plant of the Week

Chaenomeles speciosa ‘Cardinalis’, also known as the Japonica or Ornamental Quince, is a low-growing, early-flowering, spreading deciduous shrub. It produces beautiful scarlet flowers in spring, followed by yellow quince-like fruits during the autumn. Introduced from China in 1869, it tolerates both sun and dappled shade, and can be grown as a wall shrub. You can see it on the North Walk in the University Parks.
