Plant of the Day
Thursday 1 March 2018

Due to the warmer weather the Chaenomeles × superba (Japanese quince, flowering quince) was already in full flower in Seville, Spain. This spreading, small deciduous shrub, has bright flowers before the glossy leaves appear. In the autumn the plant is often covered in yellow fruit which are fragrant when ripe.
