Chaenomeles x superba 'Lemon and Lime' is a delightful and eye-catching flowering shrub that belongs to the Rosaceae family. This cultivar is a hybrid resulting from the cross between two species, Chaenomeles speciosa and Chaenomeles japonica. With its striking combination of lemon yellow and lime green colors, it adds a burst of vibrant beauty to any garden or landscape.

This deciduous shrub typically grows to a height and spread of about 3 to 4 feet (90 to 120 cm). It features a dense, spreading habit with arching branches covered in glossy, ovate-shaped leaves. The foliage emerges in spring with a fresh lime green color, creating a captivating contrast against the older, darker leaves. As the season progresses, the foliage matures to a rich green shade.

One of the most captivating features of 'Lemon and Lime' is its stunning flowers. In late winter or early spring, before the leaves appear, the plant bursts into a profusion of blooms. The flowers are small and cup-shaped, with a diameter of around 1 inch (2.5 cm). They are borne in clusters along the branches, creating a spectacular display. The outermost petals exhibit a lemon yellow hue, while the inner petals boast a vibrant lime green color, giving rise to the cultivar's name.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, 'Lemon and Lime' also attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, contributing to a thriving ecosystem in the garden. After the flowering period, small, apple-like fruits called pomes may develop. These fruits are usually green or yellow and are edible, although they are generally tart and not widely consumed.

When it comes to cultivation, 'Lemon and Lime' is relatively low-maintenance. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-drained soil. This shrub is known for its hardiness, withstanding a range of soil conditions and being tolerant of urban pollution. It can be pruned after flowering to maintain its shape and promote healthy growth.

Overall, Chaenomeles x superba 'Lemon and Lime' is an exceptional shrub that combines attractive foliage, striking flowers, and a compact size. Whether used as a focal point, border plant, or mass planting, this cultivar brings a refreshing burst of color and charm to gardens, making it a popular choice among gardeners and landscapers alike.
