You may be thinking of the "Camellias" an evergreen Shrub valued for their rich green foliage and masses of showy flowers,borne mainly in Winter and Spring,they vary in colour from White up to Red.

the name of the shrub was probably Chaenomeles japonica or Quince. In older gardening books it was known as Japonica.
