Choisya ternata Plant Description

Choisya ternata is recognised for its beautiful, star-shaped white flowers that blossom in mature plants during May. Choisya ternata isn’t shy of producing an abundance of flowers, transforming your garden into something more spectacular and inviting. Sometimes, Mexican Orange Blossom can produce a second flush of flowers in late summer/autumn if the stems are cut back by about 20/30cm after flowering in May. For the rest of the year, the glossy dark green, evergreen foliage is beautiful.

Choisya ternata flowers and thrives in a full sun position although it will tolerate partial or light shade. If placed in a semi-shaded position, the plant may not flower as prolifically as in full sun. Ideally plant in a sheltered spot in well-drained moist soil. Mexican Orange Blossom will grow in most soil types as long as they don’t become too wet or too dry for a sustained period of time.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade

  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil

  • Rate of growth: average

  • Flowering period: April to May and August to September

  • Hardiness: fully hardy

Garden care: 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.
