Chaenomeles x superba 'Lemon and Lime is a medium sized shrub, which can be usefuly trained to scramble up a wall or, alternatively, can be grwon as a specimen shrub, especially where there is sufficient space for its branching and spreading habit to be fully expressed .

Flowers occur on one and two year old wood, so pruning, which should be done after flowering, should be carried out with that in mind. In other words, a really hard cut back will result in a sparser flowering the following year, and in general pruning should be limited to a light trim to keep a neat shape
