Choisya ternata Sundance = 'Lich'PBR
Mexican Orange Blossom - 3 litres
Choisya ternata Sundance ('Lich'), a golden-leaved variety of the Mexican orange blossom, is one of the most popular shrubs ever raised, with bright golden, aromatic evergreen foliage providing colour throughout the year. Fragrant white flowers may appear in spring, early summer or autumn. Forms a dense, rounded shrub typically around 1.5m high and wide (5ft), though can get considerably taller by a sheltered wall. Thrives in any well-drained, fertile soil, with brightest foliage colour in sun, a pleasing greenish-gold in light shade. To maintain compactness, trim lightly in midsummer.
