Chaenomeles japonica. Seedlings from stock originating in Lithuania. Low growing, mostly less than 3 feet tall. Survives in cold climates probably to -30 without snow, but if there is snow the low growing plants survive in colder climates.

I have some ornamental quinces rather like that, except that the
juice is very tart. Good lemon juice substitute, though.
