Chojuraku Flowering Quince is a dense, small deciduous shrub with a rounded habit.  The foliage is a glossy dark green on thorny stems with no fall color.  Large semi-double soft orange flowers with a lighter center and yellow stamen bloom heavily in late winter into spring attracting butterflies. The fruits are showy yellow pommes in fall but can be messy on lawns or walkways.  Prefers full sun and rich well-drained soil.  The fruits and berries are bitter fresh but make good preservatives.  Drought tolerant once established.
