Fruits for ID : California : 20OCT14 : AK-15 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (4).

A very small plant with yellow fruits seen in Sacramento on 7/10/14.

These fruits reminded me of a fruit I had seen in Srinagar which … had identified as Quince.
This small plant was in a home garden.

Not sure if the fruits were edible or ornamental.


Not quince …

Chaenomeles japonica, Japanese quince, an ornamental with very beautiful flowers.

Flower for id pl.
Location -Thimpu (Bhutan)
Date – March. 2018

Cultivated?


looks Bombax., bur aestivation is different..


One doubt isn’t Bombax sp. are tall trees ? or is it a misgiving ? Because all were medium shrubs.


it was not cultivated. I saw many such shrubs near the roads.


It looks like Japanese Bird Cherry.

Likely to be Chaenomeles japonica..

Yes, I agree with …


Is ‘Japanese Bird Cherry’ a common name for this flower ?
