Mexican Orange Blossom

A classic garden evergreen with pretty flowers; adaptable and useful in lots of situations.

Mexican Orange Blossom is an easy going shrub that will grow well in sun or part shade. Rounded, glossy, deep green leaves stay on the plant through the year, forming a neat mound that will provide structure in the garden when other deciduous plants loose their leaves.  Useful for cut foliage in bouquets, this versatile shrub also makes a nice foil for other plants when it's not in flower. The pure white flower clusters are sweetly scented and are borne in late spring and again in autumn. Its delicious perfume is carried around the garden on warm days - not only a delight for you but attracting plenty of pollinating insects who will feast on the flowers.

An easy-going, hardworking shrub that looks good all year and flowers in both spring and autumn.

Plant Care & Advice

Patio gardeners will love this plant as it grows really well in a large container and is happy placed almost anywhere. Its glossy leaves look great in a sheltered, shady spot, but be aware that flowering will be reduced in a shadier site. In the ground, it is unfussy on soil type (as long as it's well-drained) and position; Choisya is drought tolerant once established. Plant in well-prepared soil and shelter young plants from cold winds. Use a good quality, soil-based potting compost such as John Innes no. 3 for container growing. Feed occasionally during the growing season with a general-purpose fertiliser to encourage lush growth and plenty of flowers. Remove spent flower heads in late spring to encourage fresh growth and more flowers in autumn.
