In our garden, this is hidden at the foot of a difficult slope and we have to make an effort to enjoy this sizeable shrub in all of its manifestations. Before the leaves emerge, multi-colored flowers create the brocade effect which is described by the Japanese name which translates to "brocade from Toyo." The foliage is glossy and dark green. Spiny branches make this a little difficult to handle and we recommend gloves when you are shaping it. In the fall, we always make the hike to harvest the aromatic fruits that turn yellow as they ripen. The perfume of the fruit alone is reason to grow Chaenomeles speciosa `Toyo Nishiki'.
