SKU: 4000000000000128 Category:


Choisya ternata ‘Sundance’ which is the same in all respects as the green version but with bright golden-yellow foliage, is fantastic for bringing some metaphorical sunshine into your planting scheme!

Golden Mexican Orange Blossom will grow best in any free-draining soil in a full sun or lightly shaded position. Ideally plant in a sheltered location as exposed locations can result in some damage to the slightly tender leaves.

Care Tips:

Plant Sundance in a lightly shaded spot, conditioning the soil with well-rotted compost and some mycorrhizal fungi to aid root development. Prune established plants in spring immediately after flowering, removing 25-30cm (10-12in) of the flowered stems. This encourages a second flush of flowers in late summer and autumn. At the same time remove any frost-damaged stems to the base.
