An older cultivar introduced in 1948 by Walter Clarke of Clarke Nurseries in San Jose who was blazing new trails in breeding Chaenomeles by crossing C. cathayensis and the hybrid x superba.with the resulting crosses called x californica and then he just had to make things potentially confusing by naming one 'California'.  This has showy pink and rose-pink flowers in early to mid spring.
