This popped up in my field and I let it grow to see what it was. Now blooming. I had a no-name quince of this same color several years ago in this general area, which then underwent a major renovation. Wondering if that old quince has resurrected itself?

You may be right.

Yes. Chaenomeles sp. .. Commonly called Japanese quince.
Very different from Cydonia oblonga ...the true Quince.

I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks, that actually amazes me. This was a shrub we dug out with an excavator several years ago for a renovation project, built a rockery and flagstone patio where it used to sit and replanted. I tend to let volunteer mystery plants grow until I can figure out if they are friend or foe, and this is one. It popped up about 15-20' from its prior location. I caught a glimpse of the bloom yesterday and thought it looked just like the old quince. @Lauribob this is a start from the quince Dad tried to kill over and over during our childhood - he hacked it back to the ground several times, dug it out, and may have tried poisoning it. Kind of his nemesis. Do you have any of this? If not, I can fix you up.

I don't have any of that and I would love a chunk when you get a chance! I too remember dad out there whacking away at the thing. You know that is one tough shrub! Not sure what he had against it - it wasn't in the way of his lawnmower like the pear tree in the back yard that went bye-bye.

Or the rhubarb he routinely mowed when it spilled over his precisely straight borders.
