I am making a diagram of the property showing all the plants that flower and when. I have terrible luck in finding the plants doing a search and more often than not come back here to ask for identification. So again I find myself not able to identify this bush. Thanking you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

It is Chaenomeles sp or one of several named cultivars.
Common name Japanese Quince.
You can make wine/jam from the fruits.See 2nd link.

Thank you both. Not sure why what I did wrong in my searches but this never turned up.

It could also be Chaenomeles japonica.
Quote wiki....."Chaenomeles japonica (Maule's Quince or Japanese Quince) is native to Japan, and has small fruit, apple-shaped, 3–4 cm diameter. The flowers are usually red, but can be white or pink. The leaves are 3–5 cm long."

OR a cross...a hybrid..... Chaenomeles x superba.
2 parents Chaenomeles japonica and Chaenomeles speciosa.

*Blush* I should have given the general database entry for all Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles)

You are right, it could indeed be Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles japonica)

Three are quite a few Flowering Quince listed in our database, both species as well as cultivars, hybrids: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

I have never seen a fruit growing on this bush. It isn't all that tall yet so maybe this year it will produce fruit?
