In the wild in China and Korea, this deciduous shrub grows into a small tree, but in gardens it makes a large or medium-sized, surprisingly hardy shrub. The foliage turns golden yellow before falling and once it has done so, it leaves a dense and very thorny tangle of stems. This makes it ideal for growing as an impenetrable hedge. The flowers are its glory, up to 4cm (11/2in) across, pure white with a strong perfume of orange blossom they are followed by small fragrant lemon-yellow fruits, attractive but very acid-tasting. Plants can be used as a hardy rootstock for citrus varieties.
