Mexican Orange Blossom - Evergreen Aromatic Shrub

  • Choisya ternata Apple Blossom is a new hybrid bicoloured variety. This low maintenance, full hardy medium-sized evergreen shrub, produces dark green fine linear leaves and deep pink buds. These then open as scented white flowers with a flush of pink on the underside during the months of April and May, with a second flourish during August to September - if pruned immediately after first flowering.
  • Choisya plants grow best in full sunlight in well draining soil, but this variety can also tolerate light shade. It will happily grow in any type of well draining soil. This beautiful plant is the ideal spaced filler in beds and borders, or in larger patio pots. It is also ideal for growing as an evergreen hedge near a seating area due to its upright growing habit.
