Mexican Orange Blossom

Aromatic leaves, fragrant flowers, evergreen and low maintenance - what's not to like?

This graceful, yellow-leaved variety of the much-loved Mexican Orange blossom makes a beautiful evergreen shrub. It is easy to grow, forming an elegant, neat mound of finger-like, glossy golden yellow leaves. The decorative foliage is aromatic, releasing a pungent rue like aroma when crushed and being shade tolerant the bright golden colour will help light up a dull spot where other plants may fail to thrive. In late spring and again in autumn you will be treated to an abundant display of sweetly scented white flowers, that are loved by bees and other pollinating insects. On still sunny days, the scent will gently drift around your garden - a delightful reminder to enjoy its beautiful blossom.

A hard-working plant that gives a lot in return for very little intervention.

Plant Care & Advice

A good choice for year-round interest in a sunny or partly-shaded garden, where it is easy to grow in most soils. For the brightest leaf colour and most flowers, grow in a sunny spot (plants grow well in part shade but leaves become greener and flowering is reduced). Also an excellent choice for a large container on the patio.

Water well before planting and for the best results plant in well-prepared soil and shelter from cold winter winds if growing in a container.

Feed occasionally during the growing season with a general-purpose fertiliser to encourage lush growth and plenty of flowers.

Cut back lightly after the spring flowering to remove faded flower heads and encourage new growth. Older plants can be cut back hard in late spring to rejuvenate them if they get too large.
