Having moved into a property which used to have a beautiful garden, i'm slowly sorting out what to get rid of and what to keep.

This is particularly beautiful, does anybody know what it is please? It's probably an easy guess but i'm such an amateur!

Thank you in advance.

Hi TheGreenFox, what you have there is a Flowering Quince. I'm not sure which one; maybe someone else will know. https://garden.org/plants/brow...
